Welcome to the Forum. We do have a 'Signalling' sub-Forum under the "Track, Layouts and Scenery" which may be of interest.

You will find several items there about the lack of ready-to-run semaphore signals for British model layouts! Basically Hornby do a few simple upper-quadrant signals, which are not the GWR type. Bachmann don't do any signals at all. The only source really is Ratio, and they produce plastic 'Quick-Assembly' semaphore signals of a GWR home, distant and a home and distant on the same post. These are kits which can be easily assembled and are ready coloured. They also do a more advanced plastic kit of GWR signals which can also be made up into bracket signals etc., but these need painting.

Some of us are having a bash at putting together signals made of metal parts sold by 'Model Signal Enginering' and our efforts are described in the Signalling Forum but this does require some experience of soldering. But they are considerably tougher than the Ratio plastic and have a much wider range of signal types.

John Webb
