Can anyone tell me please what the overall width and height of the above kit is when made up ?

Even better, are there any dimension details anywhere ?

It would really be a great help if firms like Dapol would publish dimension sheets for their models to help with layout design.

Although I've built this kit, I can't give you any dimensions as I've had to hack bits out of it to fit my requirements. I had to lower and shorten the span to go over two tracks. Even then, the span will still go over three tracks if I had a through line between the two Platform lines. When I first looked at the kit, I reckoned the footbridge could span five rail lines. It was also high enough to drive a (scale) double decker Bus under. Not much help I know. But it's better than no help at all.

Thanks for that. I have since found a site which gives very useful diagrams and some dimensions of Dapol kits.
