In this video we have a brief look at the building and making operational of signal kits. Ratio semaphore kits are covered, including a full guide to what is needed underneath baseboard level to make them work remotely using the supplied Ratio remote control kit.
We also take a look at colour aspect signals and a brief look at what is needed to make them work. The colour aspect kits on Bolton Trinity Road are Traintronics heads mounted on a Dapol signal gantry and operated through Hornby Dublo G3 (green) on-on switches.
Bolton Trinity Road is a compressed model of the real Bolton Trinity Street in around 1980, though much simplified to fit the space available. Like "Grove street yard" (Model Rail issue 143) before it, it has been built utilising recycled materials as much as possible to keep costs down. Much of its materials are reused from previous scrapped model layouts.
