Bill Cross [ BILL_C ] reviews the new Plus Model semaphore. For some time now, the Czech Republic''s Plus Model has been striving to reproduce the WW2 era in 1/35th scale in astonishing detail. Their latest addition will be good for railroad dioramas or for those building armored trains or flatcars mounted with tanks & other ordnance: a replica railroad signal, complete with wiring and chain-operated "flag."

Hi Bill,
This is a great review and I can imagine using this in a
diorama, but am unsure of its proper use in terms of the
European railway system. For example, would this be placed
where a road crosses the tracks? Or does it indicate a
switch is coming up soon? Thanks! Don Gerber

Don - see the discussion on this in Dioramas at Armorama. The answers to your questions are "no" and "perhaps, indirectly".
