I have some Hornby signals from my own childhood, but some have the
actuating wires missing and the paint jobs are a bit passed their best.
I need to make up several signals, a bracket home and 5 single post homes
for a start, and I want them to work (plan would be wire in tube, details to
be worked out once I get a working example to play with).
I have made a lot of use of the Ratio signal kits, but not as signals (the
LNER kits are handy source of girders for sci-fi stuff, and factory debris
for OO scale wargame sets)
A) Are they any good? The chap I am putting them together for isn't that
bothered about accuracy, but I am trying to keep it all as correct as I can.
B) Easy to get to work? Do they have a good design for the arm, likely to
be free and easy to add an actuator to?
C) Is the Ratio fishing line signal control any good? My instinct is to use
wire in tube.
I'm building these for a rather poorly chap, so I'm buying them for him and
my own current circumstances mean cost is an issue.
Any thoughts/comments welcome.
