At the recent Liverpool exhibition I purchased  from Keiran Ryan Models an etched nickle silver lattice post signal. A few days after the excitement had died down I decided to start building it. The etches are nice and crisp with no tiding up to do also the folding of the post is straight forward without a problem the rest was assembled with studying photo’s from different sources. If a working signal is required then care must be taken not to use too much solder around the weight and signal arm areas to keep the pivot points clear.The ladder was constructed using the jig from Keiran which is available separately.

The outer home signal is based on a timber example which is an AM Models kit from Casula Hobbies. As the post is a one piece casting all the attention was concentrated on the arm and weight areas same care taken as on the lattice post. These kits are a good result if a working model is required the I suggest time is taken to work them out and proceed slowly. The base plate and mechanism is covered in a previous post.

All for now
