Just a reminder to those interested in signalling that the preserved St Albans South Signal box, currently being restored, will be open to the public 10am-4pm Sat 7th and Sun 8th September as part of the national Heritage Weekend.
It is in Ridgemont Road off Victoria Street, close to the SW side of St. Albans City Station.
There will be a small 4mm layout demonstrating signalling principles, both semaphore and colour-light.

See the Events Calender for more detailed information.

Thanks for the update John - it's good to hear that people appreciate your efforts.

Hi John,

Another possibility would be to use reed switches & magnets ?
Thanks for the latest pics John - it really does look superb.
Nice progress John - thanks for the pictures.
