Having a load of off cuts I decided
to make a signal box that over hung the track as there was not really enough
room between the track edge and the rear of the garage.
The height above the guards van roof
to the oversailing section is much too high so after some research I decide
that a clearance of 250mm from track bed to under side to floor of the signal
box should suite all locos and wagons that I know about.
The Signal box has been lowered by
some 45mm and the upper part built.
This series of photos shows the straight
forward and bold construction.
The two lead weight are to stop the unit
falling forwards over the track.
The external parts of the signal
box are now compete and it is hoped weather proof.
The windows are glazed with glass and
the roof covered with ceramics terracotta to look like red corrugated
