After a hectic Christmas and new year at last some progress on the signals, with making up the extension cables to the GF Controls gfcontrols.co.uk servo drives and guess what they work! Next step is painting the signals, firstly a light spray of grey self-etch primer is carefully applied, then by thinning Humbrol satin white with enamel thinners a couple of thin coats are better than one thick coat, especially on the lattice post, being sure not to paint in the linkages etc, a drop of light oil will help. After making sure all is ok proceed to place on the layout and scenic making sure that they can be removed at any time.

    G’day Pete. I like your signal. I found a small article on Whitebridge which I will provide when next I see you. Best regards Peter

    The signal looks excellent. It all does! Your rendering of texture and colour is among the best I’ve seen. I was particularly taken by the way the livestock features in the background of the photos, I have never seen that done so convincingly before.
