I don't know if these will help, but you may like to see them anyway. Sadly I did not have a tape-measure with me at the time....

From the limited evidence available, it is believed to have been one of the two arms at the exit from the Lower Yard at Templecombe Junction.

The spot is 8” in diameter, so the example is about right, and it is centred 19.25” from the inner end, with a total length 33” again. The ring has an O/D of 18” and I/D of 12”.

Outstanding! My 'artwork' scales out at 8.5 inches, but great to have the actual dimensions, so a little more work required. Thanks Richard.
