HORNBY: Following the closure of the Canadian Hornby importer in 2023 we have contacted Hornby numerous times to secure continued supply of Hornby products to supply our Canadian customers. Unfortunately Hornby steadfastly refuse to communicate with us. Regretfully we have concluded that Hornby has no desire to support the Canadian market. As stocks of Hornby products are exhausted we are replacing these products with products from other manufacturers.

Ground Signals

 Signals are crucial to the safe running railway.

The very first signals were hand-operated individually by a signal "Policeman".

Later, wires and control made it possible to group levers into a signal box.

Finally the telegraph bell code system enabled boxes to communicate with each other and conduct trains safely throughout the system. Today, semaphore signals are rare, but are still in use in Cornwall and on "The Settle to Carlisle line". Mostly they can be seen working on preserved railways
