Despite modern appearances, colour light signalling has been around since the 1920s and is just as full of subtle details and variations as 'traditional' semaphore signalling. The inclusion of a working signalling system within a model railway layout is technically challenging but adds realism and 'wow' factor.

With over 200 illustrations including colour photographs of both prototype and actual model signalling, as well as easy-to-follow tables, diagrams and flow charts, this book contains:

  • A brief history of the development and deployment of colour light signalling in the UK
  • A basic explanation of how track design influences signalling design
  • Descriptions of the different components that make up a signalling system and how these components are used and controlled
  • How to create a realistic colour light signalling system for a model railway
  • Descriptions of in-cab signalling and the various types of level crossing
