Good Morning everybody,
The Shrewsbury based signal should hopefully soon be installed in its new home, fingers crossed that it has arrived intact. I think my signalling focus will be staying in Devon for most of the rest of the year, although not necessarily GWR in flavour. A brief sojourn to the east on ex LSWR metals is now in progress, which will hopefully be followed by a return to the west with a distinctly nautical flavour to it.
Anyway I've made a start and the baseplate is done, parts are ordered. More soon. Main Post and Stevens cruciform finials arrived this am, from Alan Gibson (Workshop). I already have the arms and lamps etc on hand whilst the bracket will very much be a bespoke confection of 1mm strip and L angle mainly, topped off with a couple of MSE stevens lattice dolls.
Anyway to work, the Gibson etches won't emboss the rivets themselves.
