Hello Howard -- Yes, I was impressed by your forays into Ludgate Hill North, especially the three-way diamonds. How do you manage to do the detailing so quickly -- I struggle with partial templates but you seem to do it with comparative ease!

With the OS map, the incongruous part is where the up main connects to the down main immediately after crossing Ludgate Hill bridge. In my first iteration using the LC&DR plan, this link was smooth unlike the reverse curve on the OS map. To smooth it out on the OS would push the switches back further onto the bridge where there would be insufficient clearance -- the bridge girders are tight to gauge here.

May be my reservations are unfounded and it was built with the reverse curve connection and the wider separation of the in and out tracks. Unfortunately, photographs of Holborn are few and far between, especially in the 19th Century.

Regards

Geoff
