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.
