Dear EL List:

I have been in contact with "Model Memories" about the possibility of
manufacturing HO scale DL&W/EL signal bridges such as the ones along the
Boonton line, at Port Morris and along the line from the Delaware Water Gap
to Binghamton.

Paul T. - I have attached an image of the Port Morris signal bridge. Can
you provide the link to this for the list? Thanks!

They currently make exquisite etched brass NYC signal bridges and other NYC,
PRR and NH signal and catentary strcutures and do beautiful work. Here is a
link to their web site:

I recently sent him some photos of the signal bridge at Port Morris (I am
modeling the Port Morris area on my 1952/53 HO pike) and he is interested,
BUT wanted to know the level of interest (i.e., How many can he resaonably
expect to sell!).

Could you please reply to me by Sunday, 10 August with your level of
interest and how many you might purchase. This in no way would commit you
to actually purchasing these, but he does need to gauge his market. I have
no idea about pricing, but his NYC 4-track signal bridges are $120 assembled
and painted and $67 as a kit. Seems like a bargain if the option is to
scratch-build your own!

P.S. I have no financial interest in this project or any association with
Model Memories.
