you can see what i have built in this pic.[or by simply scoring sections of plasticard to make a straighter version] i have done this wonky version first as some pics of it i have seen seem to show it like this.. i also can't decide whether to have it on both sides or not

The have these on dublin/Belfast line. They contain electric lines. They are as you have them, wonky, you can see the wires out of the end of one and in the other. They are cast concrete but the lid on top comes off. They are placed ontop of ballast but look perfect in model terms on what you have done.

As far as i can see they are only on one side.

I'll get a pic. Hope that Helped

not to hotlink
you can see them to the left. They must have tidied them for the pic as they are usually all over the place. They look a lot more detailed there but when you see them from a window you have it spot on.

and also

Hogwarts express must stop to the left hand side aswell :wink:

Hi Michael

Looks utterly splendid fella. You seem to have got the shades really spot on. Looks very realistic indeed ;)

Cheers

Not quite, but close.

The cess is the general term for the area between the lineside and the track. What you have is a run of concrete cable ducting lying in the cess, and very nice too. There never seems to be enough clutter in the cess and on the lineside in most layouts. Those ducts are pretty universal these days but all too rarely seen

You may want to add to it where appropriate by cross tracking some of the cables - usually where they need to go from EWS boxes to points motors. Once upon a time the same concrete ducting was used for this, but trains are heavy brutes and tended to crush them so these days corrugated plastic tubing is used - and usually quite brightly coloured. Dtinking straws do quite nicely.

Sorry about the delay.

Does this help explain the photo sequence of the earlier pages?
