Signal box kits and ready-to-site set-ups are more available than ever; that that leaves the question: which box is right for your layout?

This exhaustive guide features more than twenty model signal boxes set in actual layouts, and presents forty kits and projects from Alphagraphix and Bilteezi. You'll see the latest in downloads and laser-cut kits specially constructed with detailed and illustrated step-by-step instructions.

This helpful book offers tips, hints, and useful advice on tools, adhesives, and materials, while always remaining cost-conscious for those with limited time and resources. Prototype images from the Steam-era to the present day are provided as demonstrations of how to realistically model interiors, and clever ways to show them off.

There are different methods and materials to show how to scratch-build your own signal box. Finally, useful guidance is given on signals, signaling, infrastructure, level crossings, and lever frames.
