Also BR went to a lot of work to incorporate them into the Perth-Stanley re-signalling in 1962. Can anyone...

Whilst not wishing to pour cold water on ideas to promote the society I would agree with Alisdair in that I refuse to use Facebook as I consider it highly dangerous in terms of one's personal data.

Re: Bankfoot

Hi David,

Ah I meant to remove steps but thoughts had been preoccupied with trackwork. Will change. Should Loading Bank be showing joining in to banking at back?

Re: Bankfoot

Hi David,

As I sad the GF position was pure guesswork. I now cannot find a photo showing steps so unsure why I put them there. I will remove and also look at changing Loading Bank and will post revised draft for comment.

Hi David, I did this a while back so memory hazy, but I pretty sure steps from a photo, which I'll look for. If you can maybe do a sketch I can certainly alter Loading Back.
