Secondly, he would like:
- Any information that you might be able to point me towards on existing switch/point/turnout configuration design on the Southern Railway.
- Switch rail type
- Crossing Flangeway gap dimension
- Switch Opening dimension
- Flange Tip running?
- Switch/turnout mechanisms/point motors

Can anyone help with his requests?
