Can anybody point me towards pictures or diagrams of a rail weighbridge? I have a photograph of one at Watchet in Colin Maggs' book on the Minehead Branch but would like a bit more information so that I can model one.
Regards,

Adrian

Google "Pooley weighbridge". Loads of pictures and diagrams. There are also etches available.

Thanks for that Nigel.
What I'd really like to know is how the gauntlet track was arranged so that locomotives could bypass the weighbridge. It looks like a loop but with the tracks overlapped and something resembling catch points at either end. Any ideas?

Ah, I misunderstood. I thought you were looking for weighbridges in goods yards, non-rail based, as opposed to weighbridges for weighing railway wagons.

Cheers

That's great Rodney. I think the diagram will enable me to have a fair crack at it.
Many thanks.
