Signals, Detection Units & Signs
Signals, detection units and signs all work together to keep rail and highway traffic moving safely. Signals on railroads control train movements and signs are used for safety, information and speed regulation. On your layout, however, detection units can help make your signals work just like the real thing. On highways and streets, signals and signs are used for the same reasons, but you’re also likely to see advertising billboards and signs too. Billboards and posters give your layout a timeframe, and in some cases action and movement! Remember, some signs and billboards aren’t necessarily scale specific – a small HO sign also makes a good large N Scale sign or an O Scale poster. A search for signals or signs will yield plenty of ways to add realism to your layout.
