Eckon 3 aspect distant colour light signal with Yellow & Green LED’s, the kit includes all components required to assemble a fully working signal (requires a 12V DC power supply & switch to operate).
This signal kit represents an upgraded distant signal, while this type of signal was not popular on the network it enabled the equivalent of 4 aspect signalling and block section management allowing speed upgrades before 4 aspect signals were standardised.
Soldering is fragile so do not twist or pull wire
