So the next development of the semaphore
signal was to raise the signal to show clear. This was a much safer way of
indicating for now if the operating connection broke the signal would fall
to the DANGER position.
The picture, far right, shows the simple
controls used to operate the signal.
Whether you wish to use the, early, lower
quadrant or the, later, upper quadrant semaphore signals is up to you as
both are appropriate to G-Scale tracks - and remember "It is your railway"
All of this signalling was fine in the
daylight but as soon as dusk fell there was little chance that the engine
driver would be able see the signal position so a method of showing the position
of the signal was needed.
