The Layout in Google Earth

Hi all,

Just for a bit of fun, I have plotted the section of the Main North railway that I am modelling between Chilcotts Ck bridge and Pangela in Google Earth.  I have also marked the locations of the three crossing loops (signal boxes).  The prototype length is 7.1 miles (11.3km).

The same distance on the layout equates to 5.3 scale miles (8.5km). This is 75% of the prototype distance.  Click the thumbnail to see a bigger image.  It will open in a new window.

Cheers for now.
