G'day Adem,

...I note that this frame is but one of only 40 or so levers - that's a 'good workout' - hardly "paradise"...

...now, Flinders Street A Box, with its double bank of 102 levers apiece is that which I would call "a paradise"...

G'day oldfartdan,

...indeed, Sire, it's presence has been noted and if anyone actually wants this box built, I know where to go for the correct interior...

Jerker {:)}

Hey Gary,

Yeah I do recall seeing images of the Flinders Box, however I can hardly imagine such an environment being the preserve of a single man whereas these 40 levers might be possible for on Emerson to handle depending on the complexity of the yard.

I'm probably incorrect however as I'm only vaguely familiar with railway practice. aviation on the other hand is a whole different kettle of fish in terms of my familiarity with its practices.
