To give the correct credit, the 'sketches' came from JH :-) Ironically that page has been modified since your comment was posted and one sketch now replaced by an actual photo!

Somehow I've managed to miss this topic previously, so I've had some interesting catching-up to do. Moon {sic) Valley??? - sounds fun! Seriously though, wooden dolly posts intrigues me.

As regards the allocation on Push-Pull levers, I would agree that there does not appear to be a convention as to which does which. My logical (?) mind suggests that it ought to be Pull for signals coming towards you and Push for signals going away.......

An update.
Once again thanks for all the comments and advise. Since my last post I have been busy at the drawing board and I am now in a position to start cutting metal. Posted are pictures of the MSE frame. This has been extended to 17 levers with 13 set at midpoint for the push/pull.
Photos on RMweb. ... fe-on-sea/

Updates will follow.

When I learn something new, something old gets forgotten.
