I've decided that my station should have a "bespoke" signal box rather than one of the "out of the box" experiences available from Dapol, Hornby, SuperQuick or Metcalfe.

I think I can manage the base in either wood or brick but I am wondering about the window frames, stair cases and outside galleries. Does anyone know of any "cottage producers" who do brass frets or similar of these items? My particular area of interest is the west riding of Yorkshire and as I have not yet chosen a "company" I still have many to choose from such as L&Y, LNWR, NER, MR. The availability of signal box (cabin for LNWR apparently) might just swing it.

Try www.mainlytrains.co.uk perhaps? Seems to have plenty of building components about when I last looked a couple of months ago.

There's plenty of prototype info at www.signalbox.org and similar websites.

I went for the small Skaledale one based on Goathland's signal box for my layout - happens to be a favourite of mine.
Regards,
John Webb
