I am editing a new Track Handbook for the 2MM Scale Association. I have plenty of photographs of most of the track details that are necessary for the Prototype chapter, but I lack details of UIC check rails. The ones that I have seen are very different in apearance from the older type bolted to the running rail and sitting on baseplates. As far as I can see from some views taken along the track they are held with brackets, presumably fixed to extended baseplates. They also appear to be steel bars rather than rail.

On a recent trip on Eurostar and French TGVs I was looking at the French versions as they flashed past and they appeared to be higher than the running rails. Is this true in the UK? It will make track cleaning hell if they are.

Does anyone have a decent side on view of one of the British ones that they can post here, or know of one on the web that they can point me at please?  That should enable me to work out just what they are like and devise a way of making them.

I have several good photos of cast steel crossings, but with older style check rails. I presume the appearance of crossings has not changed radically.
