A Lineside look

THE VANISHING SEMAPHORE SIGNAL (Part 1)
John Emerson dips into his modeller's notebook to bring the first in an occasional series of 'A Lineside look'

There are now some very nice signal kits on the market, but try
'cross-kitting' to produce some different versions and so customise your layout. Although these ideas are based on 4mm scale models, the principle can be adapted for all scales. Observation of the real thing and careful placement of details are the key to adding realism.
