R.T.R semaphore signals have been on my wish list for more years than i wish to remember, and if a single arm signal was to cost near to £30 i would still consider purchasing one or more. i have tried constructing my own signals, they look ok, but would never pass on the exhibition circuits, i have also made the ratio kit signals, but i find them to fiddly, if you take the prices of kits, paints, time taken to build, you would find that £30 (the price mentioned above) not unreasonable by to-days prices. i recently considered building a "Jones heavy goods loco" the cost of all the items required for it was marching on towards £200, and thats before any assembly takes place, add to that the time to assemble, paint etc, and the cost far exceeds a RTR model, if you take all these factors into consideration, the cost of a signal at upto £30 dont seem that bad, plus its a better product than i could produce myself, i wonder who will be first to grasp the nettle? any bets?
