Lots of options here but Simon has not really intimated what kind of Signals he is looking for, Colour Light, or Analog? If low price is required and of a German look then the Playmobil ones are pretty good value. They could be made to work from LGB Point Motors or Air as I have done. Another option would be to hand make Signals with Brass Tube and Flat Stock for arms again using similar controls. Wire and odd Metal can be used for the Actuation method from whatever is driven (LGB Motor or Air Motor) x the Control Panel.apologies if this has been discussed on another thread.
Does anybody know where I can buy, G scale signals at a reasonable price, (after at least 10 of them). My only specifications are that they weather proof, and can be changed using a switch somehow. (So they can be operated in the same place, from my control panel.
Any ideas would be very much appreciated
But he did say he wants to operate them all from the same place. Not so sure how servos or small motors would survive in the Garden without some serious protection. Have to say my Air System has all been outside now since 2000 with no problems at all.You could also use solenoids (point-motors, perhaps?), servo's (with, or without radio-control), even small motors (though you would need limit switches etc. for this option)..
Or you just screw a bit of 'lolly-stick' to another bit of wood. Plant it in the ground, and use the 'hand of god' (intentional lower-case) when you feel like moving it..
