After discovering that neutral sections magnets are available (thanks nexusdj), I was looking to make use of them. Is there anything apparent on the contact wires themselves as you pass a neutral section, or is there just a pair of insulators? So far, I haven't been able to find an image or diagram which shows the set up so if anyone can clarify for me, I'd be hugely grateful.

Cheers,
Innis

I have basic kit for a Mk1 catenary Neutral section installation on the DLS :

UK 25Kv Mk1 Neutral section gantry cantilever KUID:45317:106215

UK 25Kv Mk1 Neutral section gant cantilever (trackside) KUID:45317:106216

UK 25Kv Mk1 50m Neutral + Comp (2mgrn) KUID:45317:106214

I've not produced a Mk3 compatible version (yet) but I can knock one up over the next few days if you want ?

I take it that means it can't be replicated with existing assets? If knocking it up isn't going to use up loads of your time, then yes please, that would be great Dave. If it's a big job, I'm sure we can cope without it.

Cheers,

Update : I managed to complete the initial catenary wire spline for the Mk3 Neutral section but work ground to a halt when it got too hot to work and test in Trainz . Now that the temps in the house are thankfully back to normal I'll make a start on the associated single mast and Headspan supports .

Yes, good to have some standard summer weather again!

That's great Dave. No rush.

Cheers,
Innis
