Kevin,

It's kinda difficult to see through the plastic so a little more info/background might be helpful.  Looks like some kind of signal masts & ladders in the upper left?

I think those parts at upper left are a driveshaft and pulley.  Those square things look either like axleboxes or some sort of pillow block.  Much of what I see visible is the casting gates and sprues -- the parts might be more recognizable if cut off and filed correctly.

Im guessing target signels and the lighting to go with them. Either that, or some really nice brass sprues you can use for rain guttter downspouts on your buildings. The rest being gondola load fodder. Just a guess. Laugh

Looks like signal parts to me, especially if those wires are the leads to a GOW/GOR/LED light bulb.

Yep,signal parts.

5 white arrow, base part.

3 red arrow, single aspect.

3 yellow arrow, three aspect.

2 green arrow, three aspect close together.

I have not found anything to match (brand) yet from a catalog.

Thank you. I saw them in an ebay auction of some items are very obvious, but I had no idea what these were.

I appreciate all of the replies.
