Looking for Cantilevered Signal Bridge (n scale)
Posted by trptman on Thursday, February 13, 2020 11:14 AM

I am looking to add some n scale cantilevered signal bridges to my layout but am having difficulty finding a source. I like the NJ International ones but they have been sold out forever. I tried contacting them via email several days ago, but it seems there is no one home. I saw some on Shapeways that looked pretty good, but one reviewer said these 3D printed objects are brittle. Anyone had any experience with something like this from Shapeways? Any ideas for other sources? I'm open to a regular signal bridge if I can't find a cantilevered version

Thanks!

Welcome to the forum.  Initial posts are moderated and when they appear is sometimes way down the list.  Or maybe n-scale signals from Shapeways are unproven.

A couple leads you can check out:

Custom Signal Systems  The advertize both NJ-I and their own

ALKEM Scale Models  The website isn't terribly informative but they have an active presence on Facebook

Atlas is resurrecting the BLMA line but I don't see a cantilever.

If the above links don't work, it's because the forum crashed when I hit submit.  Google can find em.
