Hello
I am modelling a Midland Railway c1900 Double slip and from signal box diagrams I have seen, the stretcher bars are indeed connected together at each end so there are 2 levers in the SB to control the double slip. I have built the DS in 7mm scale and have 2 rods (at each end) connected to the 2 stretcher bars as in the diagram posted. I would like to understand how these two rods are connected back to the SB.
I assume that there would be 2 adjusting cranks as in my photo attached and then a connection of the two rods leaving the adjusting cranks? - however I cannot find any drawings or photos to support this assumption.
Any reference photos would be much appreciated, Midland or any other company

My thoughts are now that there was only 1 adjusting crank and the two stretcherbars were connected together before the crank - maybe at the side or under the middle of the DS? see attached

Keith, not sure if you previously had a look through this thread:-

https://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/127305-midland-railway-crank-connection-to-stretcher-bars/page/3/

There are some good photos, but none of them show the important bit in detail. Some of the protagonists in that thread are people who do know about these things.

Best Wishes,
Howard

... and a PS ...

In that thread it mentions the Midland's extensive use of Prince and Langley's Economical facing point lock. If any of your slips ends were facing that might be a factor.
However, that said, the only Midland layout I have any knowledge of is Leeds Wellington and there, every facing point had an economical FPL - EXCEPT the solitary Double Slip which had a separately worked FPL!

Thanks Howard - some good photos within the links. I have 3 Midland Rail "Prince and Langley" EFPL modelled on my layout "Rosedale" but not required on the double slip: And the inspiration:

Oh! I do like the look of that - working hinged top as well! And here was I thinking I was the only nutcase around here:D

Now I understand why you are looking for the exact detail of how the rodding is connected - I will continue to ask around, but I fear you might need to spend a lot of time going through some dusty archives to find what you really need.

Best Wishes,
Howard

Thanks Howard, I agree about the nutcase! - as the hinged lid is usually closed:
