I am at present building an 0 gauge garden railway and need a bit of help/advice with the signalling.
As it is outside and subject to the elements the British climate has to offer certain aspects of signalling will be impractical. And thanks to the neighbours cats, things like ground signals might have to be omitted.
Im sure that I have come to the right place for all things to do with signals and I look forward to your collective comments.
I intend to try and build lever frames for my signal boxes and to try and use them as prototypically as possible but at the moment I am not sure about the layout of the levers.
I am not modelling to any particular era as all the stock I have was inherited from my late Grandfather. He was very much an LMS and LNER man and worked the Bradley Fold West 'box in the '50's. The station buildings are loosely modelled around the L&Y Railway.
So....how would the 'box lever frame be laid out and numbered? Signals first, then points? Is there a 'typical' arrangement or was it all very much individual to each company?
I have tried to leave a link to a track diagram which I hope has worked but my computer skills are worse than my knowledge of railway practices
