A personal Journey

Developing a signalling system for the railway

I’ve come to the conclusion that I really need to make an effort of including signals on my railway. I confess that making them is not top of my to do list and certainly not something I get excited about! However, I have thought that there must be some way that a philistine like me can get some way to achieving a signalled line of some sort. So having considered several directions I have come down to what follows. I hope that my layman’s approach will entice others along the same path. As it consists of three distinct areas of development each section is accessed by the links below:

Building the signals

Developing a bell system

Creating an electronic indicator system

Working the Block system

Planning
