N Gauge Semaphore Signals

Does any manufacturer supply ready made semaphore signals? I've had a quick look but can only find kits.

Ratio also do some signal kits in plastic, they look OK if a bit fragile.

MSE do some brass etches of arms but you need to fabricate posts etc and then make them work.

I've done it with old etches from the 2mm Soc. and used modified relays as signal motors. OK for a couple of arms on a post or bracket but can get a bit complex trying to fabricate and energise complex signals.

Was published a while ago in Railway Modeller if you are interested.

Frank
