  1. Anyone for a bit of CIE/IR signal? The arm and balance weight are Tyrconnel Models to which I've added the distinctive V profile to the blade. Not sure about the fluorescent colour, I think it starts off red then fades to orange eventually.. LED lit and servo operated. The LED is powered by the +/- 5V feed to the servo with a 330ohm resistor in circuit.. More Soon JF
  2. Lovely work on the big bracket Stephen. Did the same myself but only in 7mm scale.. JF
  3. The one on page 43 at Swindon looks a bit nearer to it, but I see what you mean. Does look rather odd though..
  4. A quick update! Everything still seems GWR or more correctly, BR(W)! This is a GWR 30ft distant. It uses a Borg-Rail Etched post, Scale Signal supply arm, Modelu lamp and Finial and Southwark Bridge built up ladders. Theres a few of my own etches there and the little cabinet is scratchbuilt. These 2 are a couple based on structures at Park Jc in South Wales. They use MSE brackets, Modelu lamps and finials, a scratchbuilt ground signal and my own etched arms, weight bars and ladders and a few scratchbuilt odds and sods. The staging is 0.8 ply, and the whole is weathered with enamels. If the handrails look 'orrible, its because they represent the signals in recent years fitted with modern replacements. More soon... JF
  5. What a gorgeous bracket signal and the engineering put into it still stuns me. Love the mix of corrugated and Nicholls pattern arms too. I doff my hat to the master! JF
  6. Advice? work carefully around the LED! Check your switch first! If you can expose the connections on the back of the LEDs, with a meter, check continuity back down to the resistors and also the earthing to the structure. If all else fails, I'll check it next time I come up to Freckleton...whenever that will be! JF
  7. Ooh! Theatre indicator failed? Oh dear...... Cracking cab ride video though. Having attempted something similar many years ago I can appreciate how time consuming and sometimes difficult it can be. JF
  8. Wow. The amount of engineering that goes into your signals still astounds me Steve! Lovely work as always and all power to your methods. Wonderful. JF
  9. Lovely stuff Steve. It's ages since I did any rocking shafts for signals as most of my commissions seem to be GW at the moment! JF
  10. Enjoyed the YouTube video Rod. Looking forward to the next one now! It's inspired me to get my RR37 numbered up and named as 37420. JF
  11. Many thanks for all the suggestions and helps. As I still have my CAD stabilisers and L plates on, this is all rather confusing. If only draftsight would work properly again I could just carry on where I had to leave off!.. JF
  12. Well, doublecad is installed but won't touch any of my previously done drawings...
