Clamplock Operated Double Slip Points

Unread postby S&TEngineer » Wed Apr 6, 2016 8:03 pm

Does anybody have any photographs showing the arrangements for a clamplock operated double slip layout? I have searched my personal collection in vain (I only have one for a single slip).
Regards,

Not sure if this is of any use.
From the Railtrack clamp lock handbook, available online.

By a happy coincidence I took a photo of of a clampy double slip at Derby coincidentally last week. It's taken from the station platform so is quite oblique but I can send it if you want it.
