I thought since today was the launching of our new AC&YHS forum, that it would a good opportunity to post some of my recent modeling efforts. I have scratch built three of the depot complexes from localities on the west end of the line: Jenera, Vaughnsville, and Arlington. I built them based on a relatively limited number of photos. Although not perfect, I think they are decent representations. They really need the two-bladed semaphore, but I am still trying to figure out where to obtain them. Comments and critiques welcomed.
I will post pictures as soon as I figure out how to do it.
You didn't say you were in HO but I presume that is so, you could look through Walthers giant catalog and maybe find one of those, of course you can scratch build it from brass.
I may be able to find plans for one in my B&O collections.
Here is a photo of the New London depot with the distinctive lower quadrant two direction, three position (red-yellow-green) train order signal. In 1926, AC&Y installed fifteen (15) Union Switch & Signal semaphores replacing the former Cowdry revolving disc signals at Vaughnsville, Columbus Grove, Pandora, Bluffton, Jenera, Arlington, Mt. Blachard, Carey, Sycamore, Lykens, New London, Spencer, Litchfield, Medina and Sharon Center. Accurate models of the AC&Y signals (both approach and train order) can be secured from Tomar Industries. Make sure to first contact Dwayne. REL
