but due to the large solenoids in front, I m not happy with the location .
a bit further to the right but have to angle it


still not enthused so I have this version ( yes USA outline) but as there are so many variations of signal boxes/cabins  in the UK. it may fit in..



 

Just a thought Sol, but if you could set the point solonoids back from the track a little, one you could hide under the signal box and the other under a longish lamp hut maybe.

As I said, just a thought though not as dangerous as most of my ideas !

Allan, shifting solenoids would be a major job as the turnout itself would have to be lifted to extend the operating rods which are in the hole in the tiebars. The solenoids are not a clip fit to the tiebar.

Looking very nice. Mind you, with the increase in height the current absence of a lever frame is more noticeable.

The cabin has been modernised - no lever frame as such, just an angled table with track plan and touch switches as all turnouts & signals are electric. You may have noticed, no chimney either. The D&S replaced the old West cabin a few years ago. The other end of the station is still worked the old way - lever frame ... well that is my story !

Every great layout has to have an opt out excuse Sol, and yours is as good any !

Anyway, your layout, your rules, and as it should be ! And my excuse for interior less signal boxes ? Still working on it, still working on it...
