7mm scratchbuilt signals

Here's a rather nice set of 7mm scratchbuilt signals. They are all working, including the lights. Paul Van Herwegen bought them some 20 years ago, so has forgotten who built them – but whoever it was certainly knew what he was doing.

Fixed distant, Siding signal, Stop (Home/Starter) signal.

Bracket signal


Stop signal with lower working distant

[Editor's note: A prototype signal would not have displayed such a situation: distant signals were 'slotted' with the home arms above them to prevent them being pulled off when the home was also in the off position.]


Stop signals, note different spectacle plates
