Just a note to say, that is the N gauge version.
If you need the OO version, I managed to get mine from fleabay for a fraction of what's being asked everywhere else.
Literaly £1.25 for OO http://tinyurl.com/oogaugeversion
£1.26 for N http://tinyurl.com/ngaugeversion
Hope it helps
Thanks

I guess you stand it on edge, but without measuring one, whether it's from rail top or sleeper base I wouldn't know. Platform height (apart from modern or rebuilt stations) is very variable. Best plan is to work to a photo of the sort of scene you are trying to re-create. Even some fairly modern stations are quite low compared to the train, try the down (uphill, outside of curve) platform at Warwick Parkway about 18" from carriage floor and 9" or so from the step board.
Growing old, can't avoid it. Growing up, forget it!

Platform height is measured using the flat end of the gauge vertically.
As shown in the picture you can see "PH" (platform height) embossed on the gauge itself.
