I saw these as new arrivals on the MBK site:

http://www.tomarindustries.com/signals.htm (look under target and vertical signals - there are 3 n scale versions)

I'd rather stick with NJ International signals.  They simply look better.

Also, the TrainCat signals, proportionally, look better than the tomar ones.  I got a whole bunch of them to do.  I will be busy for a while.

I almost think this is a case where the pics (which are ridiculously bad) don't do the model justice.  Anyone seen these in person?  The pics on MBK's site are much better, and the price is a little better than the SMD's.

Isn't TOMAR generally recognized as having good quality stuff, and more importantly availability would be better?

I wasn't aware TrainCat had similar signals, but I'll check it out.

Hmmm, the Type D kits that TrainCat has look like a purchase.  Are there any dealers besides TexNRails that carry these?  They are on my "list".
