Can anybody recomend a good source of N gauge signals both semaphore and
electric?
Thanks

Semphore;
Some items in Ratio plastic ranges (I think still available). When I last looked, included GWR lower quadrant single arm on post which worked.
Model Signal Engineering have several types (they offer signals in several scales). These are brass construction, and will require assembly, probably best if soldered. Can be fiddly to assemble, though the lattice post types with summersault arms are spectacular :-)

Rat10 do Upper and lower quadrant signals (GWR and LMS style) The GWR ones work, but not sure about the LMS (I have one purchased yesterday, but not opened the packet yet!)
For Electric, try Berko or Eckon. Berko are ready made, and Eckon are kits. Both from the same factory!

I use BH Enterprises signals on my layout.

I fond that they're closer to scale than alternatives, and slightly cheaper too.

Sadly, I couldn't find any pics of the signals on either of the sites quoted... I'm interested in these if I can see a pic... (Are they Upper Quadrant by chance?)

Does anyone know where to obtain "memory" wire for a possible project to make some N signals work?

Either the Belgium company quoted elsewhere in the thread, or if you prefer a UK based company, C&L Finescale have both the wire, suitable tubes, fittings, and even a starter pack to try experiments.
(C&L being makers of various track finescale track stuff, mostly 4mm scale, Carrs soldering products, and numerous other things).

Sounds very similar to the Belgian stuff, although prices seem higher. The wire is 0.150mm rather than 0.125mm. This product has been introduced since I last bought memory wire from Jacques in Belgium.
American-made Flexinol wire is available in diameters from 0.050 to 0.375mm; see

Sorry Andy, I should have mentioned these were colour light signals!
