Polbrook Gurney Colliery Update - weighbridge

Polbrook Gurney Colliery update: Today I'm building a weighbridge, a common feature was the splitting of the line to allow trains to pass through without using the weighbridge. A hut which would have contained the measuring apparatus needs to be built, and will go top left of the split track. Here's a prototype example, though my control hut will be more rustic and smaller and be partially set back into the undergrowth. http://www.flickr.com/photos/12a_kingmoor_klickr/5783179259/

  1. The weighbridge is a nice touch!

    They're not often modelled though I remember them being a really common feature around Scunthorpe steelworks; never saw them in use but we did renew a few rails on and around them.
