Non kit signals
« on: July 02, 2018, 12:26:27 pm »
Hi, does any one make ready made signals other than dapol? Have tried the ratio kit ones and struggled with the very smal part so was looking for some ready made.
Thanks in advance

The P D Marsh ones are very good ,they do quite a range and if your an expert can be made to work with a solonoid under the base board . I have only got a few signals left  on my layout my two mates are very clumsy and broke most of them, and I cant afford to keep buying replacements.

That’s a laugh they keep,pleading poverty but some how manage to get a new car every three years ,new tele every now and then and expensive cameras ,one of them says the car is a mobility car and his son only works part time as a school cleaner and is on benefits . with housing allowance etc etc .
How the other half live ,Me and my wife worked hard and although we don’t have a lot everything we’ve got we’ve worked hard for .
BUT THE PROBLEM IS  there is no one else in the High Wycombe area that can come round and help operate my layout so I have to put up and shut up .
They are both useless at building ,wireing ,or repairing anything .
I gave them each a track rubber and asked them to do the main line while I moved the stock around and done the fiddle yard track  all twelve lines .
THAT WAS MY BIG MISTAKE THATS WHY I HAVE HARDLY ANY SIGNALS .

Coming late to this,  it wasn't stated but judging by the follow up posts the question is regarding British N signals specifically?

Mike Howarth also does a decent range of n gauge signals. He sells them through his E-bay shop. Usual disclaimer.

If I recall correctly he trades under the name mikeskits. So a quick search on E-bay should find it. Or at least he did, I haven't looked for a few years.

No listing on ebay by that name although he has an account.
