    Howdy,

    I am thinking about adding block detection and signalling to my layout. I am looking at signals from South Bend Signal Company. They have single bulb single target, multiple target, 2 bulb and 3 bulb single and multiple target signals.

    My layout is loosly (very loosly) Great Northern from the 1950s. I remember the GN coming through town vividly, but don't remember anything about the signalling. I have searched the internet, and this site for GN Signalling information, and not had much luck.

    Can you give me some hints/suggestions will be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Sorry, I don't have answer for you, but wow, I never heard of this company before. Looked 'em up and they have some pretty decent looking signals for cheap! Only $17 for a single target n-scale signal. Nice.

    Signals

    Shaun,

    I have seen them at the local train show, and they really do look nice. I was most interested in the HO units, and the signals (both main line and crossing signals) really looked nice.

    Clark, do you belong to a GN or BN historical society? They might be able to give you a more difinitive answer than we could here on the Gauge unless someone here is a BN prototype modeler.
