We hope to have ground signal lamp cases available shortly. We also expect to be manufacturing a batch of commutator contacts for 1947 block Instruments. We will also have available the correct Fillister head screws. Though both of these items will be dependent on suficient interest for us to make a bulk order from our suppliers.

It is a little while since this page was updated, some of our recent manufactured items have included complete Tubular Signal Fittings kits, also some components for Timber Post signals, along with Facing Point Locks, along with Lock Stretcher Bars.

Also to be produced will be some more signal fitting kits. We are also looking into Token Exchange Equipment. The production of some Tyers Tokens and spares have been delayed as samples failed to make expectation.

October 2016

Following agreement with Mors Smitt, the successors to Tyers Ltd, a number of Tyers parts will be available. First parts to be available will be the Bronze Tyers version of the Token Keys. We already supply alluminium Keys to the GWR specification. Patterns A to D will be available first, with the special available if there is demand. These products will be followed by Token Locks. Spares for token machines will also be available. Whether complete machines will be offered depends on there being demand, as they are not cheap to manufacture.
