It is strange, but undeniably true, that modellers who can glimpse the profile of a coach and tell you its diagram numberand appear to have counted every rivet on their superb engines, look blank whenever signals are mentioned. Yet they are an essential and prominently visible part of the railway scene. The author of this book has more than 28 years service in the Signal & Telecommunications Department of the full-size railway. He is also an accomplished modeller, as the illustrations of his exceptional work in both 4mm and 7mm scales will show. In this well-illustrated account, he explains his constructional procedures, some of which are the result of his own deliberations; others are gratefully borrowed from fellow modellers who have published their effortds in the model press over the years. He does not claim that this is the only way to build model signals, but his methods are incredibly impressive.
