To place an object at a station/offset that is before the beginning of the alignment

Hello, I am looking for optimal solution how to place an object at a station/offset that is before the beginning of the alignment. In particular I also need to place it to profile elevation. The only thing I need is how to move/translate object in direction of alignment. This direction/vector should be based on alignment station. This thread follows up Exploding AutoCAD text (TXTEXP) and extrude to 3D solids

you can find the location/orientation using the start/end CoordinateSystem on the Alignment. for the elevation is trickier as you might have a Profile that is longer than the Alignment.
