Semaphore Signals

2484 Views 8 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  7113
Some help please - I have got to the point on 'my Grandsons' 00 layout where I want to set up some Semaphore Signals, but I have absolutely no idea on the rules positioning on them.

For example how should I site the signal on the outer (main line) track where the points can switch traffic to the inner loop, what type of signal would it need to be, also on the reverse - from inner to outer line?

Also some guidance what type of signalling and positioning would be used in a goods yard, circa 1950 would be much appreciated.

I hope to be building them from the Ratio range.

I think a lot of it is if you have been modelling or studying the subject of railways for a long period you begin to know where to find things. If you have a large personal library it helps and you can bookmark relevant sites on your computer - easy really.
