WORKING semaphores are tricky to make in any scale, but happily Dapol has completed development of its new bracket signals for ‘OO’ gauge as well as the first of its ‘O’ gauge ready-made signals. First to arrive are a ‘OO’ gauge Great Western Railway (GWR) square post bracket signal (Cat No. 4L-001-005) and a GWR square post home signal for ‘O’ gauge (7L-001-001). Both feature lower quadrant arms which drop from horizontal to show whether the route ahead is clear.
