  • GWR Bracket Signals

    Hi Guys,

    Is there any ideas when these will be available? I really want to upgrade Midsummer End to these lovely signals, but with no Bracket Signal I can only do one at present.

    Thanks

    Steve

    What is the progress with these chaps ? In N. When realistically do you expect them to come to market ?

    Best Regards

      I'd definitely find space for two of these on my Blochescwic & Walshed layout, need to replace my Ratio gantry that suffered irreparable damage on the journey back from TINGS 2016.

        Another vote for these here. I am hoping ot start work on my N gauge GWR exhibition layout this winter so having the signals before work starts would help

          In the words of Pink Floyd in 'The Wall'.....

          'Is there anybody out there ?'

          you tube clip of brackets was published what feels like 3 years ago.....have the brackets bitten the dust ?

          Be good to hear something from the horses mouth about where these are at.

          Best Regards

            Hi Matt, the OO versions will be out first and we should have something tangible to show at Warley. Once the OO versions are out there we will produce the N gauge version, which will utilise the same working mechanism. The whole project has taken longer than we anticipated and certain design problems have had to be overcome, such as minimising the hole requirement for installation, making it reliable and expandable and of course in making it affordable. We are really sorry for the delay this has caused, but we really think in the long run, it will be worth taking the time to get this right. Incidentally, the new design is completely different from the that shown on the video clip you mentioned, this would have required a 50mm diameter hole and would have had an unacceptable selling price.

          Thanks for that Joel. All good positive information. Thank you for the update - appreciated.

          Best regards

              Since these were announced 5 years ago or more and the OO ones have been out for some time now is there any news on progress for the N gauge version?

                A short query, when you have fitted the signal into its powerbase can it be removed easily from the powerbase without damage?
                I am talking about the bracket signal.

              Dear Dapol
              Can I remove a signal from its powerbase easily without damage once it has clicked into place?

                Hello Alan, I have removed the signal from the base many times here at Dapol with no problems and I am not the most dexterous of people :-)

                Along similar lines, I have been building an O gauge layout and now require a junction signal for the end of the platform. After the introduction of the O gauge Home signal I was under the impression that there would be an array of O gauge signals to match the oo versions but nothing so far.
                Is there any plans to add to the O gauge range and when could we expect them?
                Many thanks.

                  Hi Spaceship, yes we are working on extensions to the range now and will have announcements out in due course. It is difficult to give time scales in light of the current environment as everything is taking longer than envisaged, however, as the control box is essentially the same, it should not be too long in development and we should have further signal types out mid 2021.

                Oh good! I'll watch out for them then, thanks.
