Thank you sir.

These are the lights I used. I must say I was impressed on the quality for the price.

Oh boy! Probably one of the more challenging things that I have done. The only thing I screwed up on (so far) was the placement of the single mast. It should be high as the other two.😞

The middle signal is going to be interesting to wire. It’s the only one that needs to have three aspects. It will have to work with the yard lead switch. I have an idea on what I need to do. I just need to figure out how to do it. This mast will show clear, medium clear and stop.

Well, I finally got the signals lit. But unfortunately the middle signal is going to take some time to figure out how to make it show three different aspects. I thought I could make it work with a couple of micro switches and a relay. Since I do not use tortoise switch machines or computers to run my layout this will take a little figuring out. But for now I’m very content with what I have.
