If you are wondering about adding traffic lights to your model railroad, Kim shows you how:
This is a test build of a north American traffic signal. Made from wood.
This next one is made from a credit card and a plastic large tie wrap,and coffee stir stick for the len’s. Now after painting,and the len’s trimmed.
This is the finished project other than installing 1 or 3 LEDs. The led’s will slip into the tubes. If you noticed they are not the yellow American signals. these are UK built in mind.
The led’s are 3mm red yellow or green or all of them. If you want can have say a yellow 3mm flash can act as a caution signal.
Or can find a small project from the net to run a bunch of signal’s and have them switch to each color alturnatly. So what ya think?
This signal is to be installed onto a pole like in the UK. Im working on a hobo moonshine still right now. HO scale. These signals are HO scale as well. If you like a run down on it let me know.
Oh forgot to add. if you want these to be north American signals. Just paint the signal the canery yellow.
In the UK don’t paint the twist tie as it looks better weathered.
Paint only the credit card,and len’s be adding those tiny cctv camera’s soon.
