    If anyone's interested the 2016 version of Ian Allan's Gradients of British Mainline Railways is currently available at a cover price of £15.00. Got mine from Postscript Books at £9.99

    Must admit I would have thought most of it was dead flat:).

    Indeed. But the one or two gradients (even if it is a 1:999999 for 2 metres) would interest me as I'm looking to do some modelling at some point.

    Doesn't include the new diversion either by the looks of it?

    Hi all,

    Does anyone have an up to date version of the Foxfield's gradient profile? The links in the thread all direct to an old webpage and I can't find another version online.

    Cheers,

    PLP

    Brilliant, thanks for that! I hadn't clicked on any of the Facebook links as I don't have it myself but I don't need to be logged in to see it so that's great.

    Cheers,

    PLP

    Nene Valley gradient profile ...

    I was given this shot several years ago, I hope that this is of use.
