Homemade Layout Scenery – More from Builder Kim

Last month I received some excellent photos from Builder Kim, which you can look at herehere.

This month I was pleased to see some more photos come through from Kim, along with this email:

“Hi Dan.
Hope you are your family had a great Christmas. Thanks for posting my builds. Hope your readers like them. I have something that will really get them going. I take static railways signal lights, and make them work like the real one’s. It costs nothing to do.

The first is a non working railway signal, now working green and red.

The second is a crossing signal non working static which is now working. I used clear flashing LED’s instead of red ones, as I had ran out of red. Also show how to hide the wires. If your interested in the how to and a few pictures to show each stage, then let me know. The railway signal lights can be hooked to your track with a reed switch diagram I also have for it. Okay, back to building. Im doing my own real wood HO scale house windows. So let me know if you want to see these builds. The photos you posted about a guy who built a layout for his grandson; I noticed a lot of non working static signals and such. Be a huge blast for his layout and put a huge smile on faces getting them to work. I want to help.
Thanks.
Kim”
