Signalling a layout
« on: January 14, 2019, 08:02:48 PM »

I have pretty much planned my N gauge layout and would like to signal some of it with either semaphores or colour lights. If I were to add the plan on a future post, would anyone out there be able to have a look and offer me some advice? Thanks in advance, Robin

Welcome aboard Robin.
Iím sure that if you put up a plan youíll get plenty of comments and advice.
Signalling is always a complex and sometimes controversial issue which causes a few headaches (me very much included).
Are you talking working or static signals?
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Hi Robin :wave: and welcome aboard! :wave:

I've got quite a few books on signalling. Still a mystery to me though. ???

Welcome aboard, Robin.

Is your planned layout of a British location?  If so, which part of the country?

Roughly what year/s is the layout going to represent?

The Table-Top Railway is a train set trying and failing to be a model railway.

I believe that train sets and model railways are fun.
