Thanks, RMWeb. Now I know! Names have some strange origins. I recall hearing that ‘Tooley Street’ next to London Bridge started off as ‘St Olaf’s Street’. Go figure….. There are some good videos posted by this guy, including….
There’s been a flurry of ‘Minories’ discussion again on RMWeb. And here are a few of the new ideas. Probably the optimum Minories arranagement, using two ‘Y’ points to reduce the reverse curves and straighten the platform. An ‘almost’ Minories … Continue reading
Number 4 is my second Minories post. Back to normal (whatever that may be) next week! If you leave London, and head to the other end of the commuter lines, a Minories like design, sort of ‘mini-Minories’ is another option. … Continue reading

Urban layouts seem to be everywhere at the moment! Here are a few more, including a couple of ‘almost Minories’. First, Graham Bridge’s ‘Southwark Bridge’, currently under construction…. An almost exact Minories, but with an extra couple of platforms or … Continue reading
