Subject: Custom Designed HO DL&W/EL Signal Bridges - AVAILABLE SOON!

Over the past few years, I have sent out information about a project to make available custom designed, highly detailed DL&W/EL signal bridges. The actual configurations of heads, maintenance platforms and walkways is up to you to specify. They would be available as kits, assembled unpainted or painted and with or without LEDs installed and wired.
Model Memories is a highly regarded model maker of etched brass signal bridges and catenary structures and has completed drawings for an accurate model of the 4-track DL&W/EL signal bridges that were used in NJ and PA. I have linked to a photo of the 4-track one the used to stand at Port Morris. Several are still standing between Stroudsburg and Scranton today.
Remember, these are custom made, hand assembled in the U.S.A brass models of the highest quality. I have no financial interest in this project and am not associated with Model Memories in any way. My interest is purely to have an accurate model for my railroad without going the time and complexity of scratch-building these. You can visit his web site to see for yourself:
I have also linked to two photos from Model Memories website illustrating his 4-track NYC signal bridge and 2-track cantilever signal.
The drawings are complete for the DL&W/EL bridges and we are now seeking additional modelers who would commit to purchasing one or more units. If you are interested, please contact me directly off-line.
Again, I have no financial interest in this project. I just am interested in making sure DL&W/EL modelers have an accurate model of the very distinctive 4-track signal bridges for their layouts.
