Hi All.    I went to another Model Railway Show this weekend, at Aylesbury . There was some very nice layouts there but very few came up to scratch as far as signals were concerned . But there was one  layout with working Semaphore Signals, I enquired, how were the signals controlled ?? as you do. Simple said the operator, they are manual worked by rods and cranks under the baseboard . But I forgot to enquire “Where he purchased the signals, or if they were his own work” . Would any kind Member please advise me??   Best wishes. Kevin

Hi Dave.  Thank you for your reply. The show was Railex 2018 at Aylesbury in the Stoke  Mandeville Stadium.I have a programme and I have been studying it, but, cannot recognise the layout from the plans. My only hope is that I will see the layout again. Best wishes. Kevin

Hi Dave.   I am sorry to say, that considering the fact, I have been reading for many years, I didn’t read your reply properly . Since then I have been reviewing the footage and so far I have not ,or do not recognise the layout in question. But I will keep looking.   Best wishes.  Kevin

Piano wire in tube is a perfectly feasible means of operating signals manually. I have seen that used in conjunction with a Modratec frame and also with another of which the manufacturer escapes me for now. As to which layout if a picture was available it might be enough to positively identify it and therefore trace the exact system used.

Hi Rick.  Thank you for your reply. It could be the same wire “Wizard Models Ltd” that I use for my WIT point control.But the signals were really interesting , no fancy electrics to get burned out.  Best wishes Kevin
