             71A  -    Eastleigh  ....

I will have to dig out some further Information to completely but I can advise the following: 

 

Nine Elms 64’10” Ransoms & Rapier 

 

Salisbury 64’10” over girder replaced by 70ft Ransomes & Rapier under girder in 1956. 
 

Eastleigh 54’10” (as in 1934) I need to check if it was later replaced with a larger turntable.

Hawkins & Reeve say no, it never was, and larger locos used a triangle.

Thanks that confirms my initial understanding that it was never replaced due to the triangle as I can find reference to it being so.
