Blind displays - BeachBoy99 - 04 Oct 2019

Hi everyone.


So for those who are aware, I'm working on bus drawings based on GNE liveries. Within these, I show the routes on all three blinds (front, rear and side). One problem I'm facing with a few is that the via points displayed on the front blind don't fit on the rear as the rear blinds are shorter.


Example is below – the drawing I'm focusing on is Loop 93.

Destination: Gateshead loop

Via points: VIA Low Fell then Heworth


Front display: [Image: CLGZQOM.png]


Rear display: [Image: hCSltor.png]


Obviously from the references here, the via points don't fit on the rear display. I was under the impression that the via points would be the same on both displays, but what would the solution be here? I had exactly the same problem yesterday trying to produce the display for service 35 to Low Moorsley, for which at one point the blind displays VIA Sunderland & Houghton and therefore also doesn't fit on the rear.


Any solutions? Anyone have any good quality photos of these? Probably asking for too much here...


Thanks Smile

So I clicked the urls in your post and got the following images. Appreciate I'm not the most tech savvy when it comes to posting urls, but I'd go for a dowel joint and McLeans.

Wtf? :') They shouldn't be links either. They should be attached photos?

This is why I hate trying to attach photos into forums. Absolutely shit.

It's probably because you're on mobile also. I'm using desktop.

RE: Blind displays - BeachBoy99 - 05 Oct 2019

So has anyone got any solutions to the problem rather than saying they can see the attached photos? -.-


RE: Blind displays - deanmachine - 05 Oct 2019

I know the 35 just says “via Sunderland” on the rear rather than both via points.
