PREMIER SIDE MOUNT SEARCHLIGHT SIGNALS, SL-Series
This style of signal is used throughout the US and Canada. Each target will give all three colors. The signals will come with the Atlas-O 21st Century Signal System’s™ Block Signal Controller. Each signal will feature all of the details expected from Custom Signals including the correct scale size and decoration. It will also have the truest RR colors available with the fade in/fade out effect and the approach lighting option. The decoration will have scale platforms, ladders, railings, supports, bolt, rivet and other details. The wires will be hidden and will easily connect with a modular plug. There will be 5 versions so that your signaling system will look prototypically correct. The ground (mast) signals will be accompanied by single and double dwarf signals. These will also integrate into the Custom Signals Modular Signal System™ and give all three colors from each target.
Atlas 6932, SINGLE TARGET SIDE MOUNT SEARCHLIGHT SIGNAL
This signal will be produced by Atlas-O. It will have all the details
mentioned above including a detachable mile post sign. The possible aspects
would be CLEAR, APPROACH OR STOP. It is used on the main
lines as an intermediate signal between interlockings for Automatic
Block Signal control (ABS). It can also be used coming off a
junction onto a main line, at the end of a passing siding or at a rail
crossing at grade.
SL-25 2-TARGET, STAGGERED SIDE MOUNT SEARCHLIGHT SIGNAL
This signal will be produced by Custom Signals. The possible aspects
would be CLEAR, APPROACH OR STOP. This signal is used as an
intermediate signal. It is usually placed as an advanced approach signal
before a home or interlocking signal.
The lower target is wired as a fixed red light. This signal comes with 1 signal control board that changes the aspects on the top target.
SL-26 2 TARGET, STAGGERED SIDE MOUNT SEARCHLIGHT SIGNAL WITH FUNCTIONING LOWER TARGET
This signal will be modified here at Custom Signals to display all of the aspects of the SL-25 with additional aspects on the lower target. It will come with a second SCB for the lower target. The lower target will display either red or yellow colors.
SL-35 2-TARGET, HI-LO, SIDE MOUNT SEARCHLIGHT SIGNAL
This signal will also be produced by Custom Signals. It is used where
the middle target of a 3-target signal is assumed to be red. The possible
aspects would be CLEAR, APPROACH, STOP on the top target or SLOW CLEAR, RESTRICTING, STOP on the bottom target. This would usually be used when a train has an option of staying on the main line at normal speeds or taking a diverting route to a restricted speed area. A very slow train speed would be expected when the train takes a diverting route.
SL-45 2-TARGET, SIDE MOUNT SEARCHLIGHT SIGNAL
This signal will also be produced by Custom Signals. It will display
NORMAL, LIMITED AND MEDIUM speed aspects. It is the
signal commonly used at the point end of turnouts for
interlockings, junctions and crossovers.
SL-55 3-TARGET, SIDE MOUNT SEARCHLIGHT SIGNAL
This signal will also be produced by Custom Signals. It can
be used at interlockings especially where more than one
diverting route is possible. Because it has 3 targets,
NORMAL, LIMITED, MEDIUM AND SLOW speed aspects
are possible using this signal.
SL-11 SINGLE TARGET DWARF SIGNAL
This signal will also be produced by Custom Signals. The dwarf
signal usually indicates slow speeds only. It is used in yards,
sidings and other places so as not to be confused with block signals.
Because it integrates into the Custom Signals Modular Signal System,
all three aspects will be available.
SL-12 DOUBLE TARGET DWARF SIGNAL
This signal will also be produced by Custom Signals. Since each target
will give all 3 colors, multiple aspects will be available. It can be used
at interlockings and junctions for more than just turnout direction. It can
also indicate faster speeds than a single target dwarf. It is usually used
at the entrance to a yard.
The number of aspects that can be displayed on any of
the signals can be increased by using the BSF-3, BLOCK SIGNAL FLASHER
board for any target.
