Dirk, those are VERY COOL, nicely done! You never cease to amaze me with your ingenious offerings.
I could use one of your lower quadrant Train Order signals for Cajon station. The other one I need, for Summit, was an upper quadrant type during the era I model, see pics. Is there a way to modify the signal to an upper quadrant type?

Lovely. I have a soft spot for these, having made a trip to Raton Pass two years ago to experience the 1:1 before they were PTC'ed out of existence (still pending, I gather).

The block signal version appears pretty close to what was on the LA&SL (UP line to Los Angeles) before it was CTC'ed in the late '40s. So rule #1 applies here: I will have to sneak a pair somewhere on the layout even though I'm supposedly modeling 20 years later.

Hi Otto,
Do you have a drawing (or better picture/reference) of the upper quadrant version? From what  I see the pivoting position is different. So that would mean a new 3D drawing/print of the mast top.
It certainly means a new etching for the new blade...... and a new clear plastic claser cutting for the lenses .......
It can be done but will take time and some money I am afraid......
Let me know what you want.......  good luck and kind regards, Dirk
