Dummy or working? CR Signals are the obvious source for working, they're not the cheapest, but coming from O will likely seem a relative bargain ;)

Yes sorry, I meant was Ian after dummy or working. CR ones are actually 19 working, which is less than I had in mind.

They are very, very small when to scale though, the CR Signals working ones are over scale, if such things worry you.

Hi there,

These are the one I passed on to Mick (who gave a donation to the forum funds  :thumbsup:)

https://www.trainshop.co.uk/scenery-n-/9631-n-gauge-painted-ground-signals.html



They are the P & D marsh ones Chris mentioned

James at "Detail Matters" also makes some, as well as brass etched point levers

https://www.detailmatters.co.uk/N_scale_Trackside_Point_Levers_Painted_4_pack_non_working/p2155294_10250263.aspx





Going off topic (so I won't put the pictures here) James also does excellent N gauge road signs in brass etch  :D

Hope this helps

All best wishes

Kevin

Many thanks for all the useful advice.  Perhaps will try to make my own but for the layout I'm involved with, time is not on my side......

Ian. In the section signals Lower Quadrant posted about Building a semaphore junction signal , page 2. I used the method with 1.2mm tube as mast too. I found in my local DIY store .8mm red led lights. Super glue on top  piece of .75mm plasticard for dummy signals  red pen or tape at motorist shop,  cut cardboard backing onto disc.  Cut tiny hole to represent liight and bit of tedious but super glue red led. Cheap  and they are dummy. 1 evenings work
