    This picture was taken in the Signal Box at Bo'ness recently. I think that the little hump of 1 in 80 in each direction at Birkhill was flattened out when track was reinstated between Birkhill and Manuel.

    The gradient profile for the Isle of Wight Steam Railway is not currently on the railway's website.

    This is the "official" version.

    On the 45th!
    The first survey results of the dip under the Shrewsbury road are in. CHR between Oswestry and Weston will have sections of around 1 in 80 either side of the bridge. The actual gradient will be measured once track is laid.

    Does anyone have a Ffestiniog Railway profile they could make available?

    TIA

    It might just be something odd in my settings (I’m using Tapatalk on my phone) but I am seeing the same image multiple times in the first post.
