At last, Another Post!

To say that 2020 has been an interesting year would be an understatement!

Bush fires and COVID-19 have certainly kept us occupied and focussed.

Unfortunately, I can't blame either or both for my lack of blog posts. I haven't managed to get any work done on the layout at all although I had great expectations of achieving a lot.

The reason comes down to that other 'small' interest of mine, my Signals Branch hobby business.

I really like designing 3D models and I keep having ideas about what would be fun to do.

Anyway, for an update of what I have been doing please hop over to my Signals Branch blog to find out.

Here is a teaser or two.

There are a lot more photos of other new signals and information on my Signals Branch blog.

Hi Ray. Thanks to your joy of making Semaphores, I have one of the best accessories a layout can have. Thanks a lot and it's good to see you're making even better ones, an option I'll pass on at the moment.

Given the number of my signals you have built and installed that is totally understandable. As you know, I am in the same boat as I bought mine well before I did these latest brass signals.

Fantastic Ray, if you can make these RTR, how good would that be! I am hopeless at this fine detail.

Ray P said...

I am not sure what you mean by RTR but I do supply them built, painted and operable by servo or other push/pull means.

Although you can't see then each signal has a base/mechanism below the board.

Go to the Signals Branch blog and scroll down to the post below the latest for info about the mechanism options.

Thanks Ray for making it easier to have NSW lower Quad signals on my layout. They look much better than most earlier signals I have built over the years. Working signals make it a pleasure to operate my layout. As you know, some of your signals are operated using an interlocked electric staff which ensures no head on crashes can happen on my single line section, and others are operated by track detectors and interlocked with turnouts, avoiding train crashes.
