Signals

Unfortunately Grenfell was very limited in its need for signals as building them is an aspect of the hobby I really enjoy, so much so I have about 7 different signals built as well as a partially built gantry. With only an single A frame, one home signal and a landmark signal at Grenfell I have packed away all my signal parts to stop the temptation and concentrate on modelling.

Both signals are soldered up from components that use to be sold as part of the IR Models range. The lamps have been drilled out and had .8mm LEDS inserted, the inside coated first to ensure no shorts. The home signal will be powered by a similar mechanism to the “bouncer”. Apologies for the poor picture of the landmark, the camera just will not focus in the light!

Cheers for now
