Im interested in the train operated points recently installed on the WHR, in particular the hydraulic damping system used to stop the point blades being smashed back and forth. would it be possible to get details on what parts are used and where they came from? (cylinder, valve, pipework etc).
I'd also like to know how the points are operated to the reverse position for shunting moves etc.
