    Hi All, Just a quick noteon new products shipping in the next months.

    1) I have started the etching process for both 2 and 4-track PRR Lines East signal bridges that have an increased width for people running track spacing that is larger than prototypical. The two track is slightly over 2.5" between the bents and the four track is 5" between the bents.

    2) I just received the plans from the PRRHS for the PRR Lines West signal bridge and will have them available in Nov. These will also have an increased width.

    3) A 3-track versions of both PRR signal types (Lines East and Lines West) suitable for N-Track will be available by Dec.

    4) The Double Track 163ft Pratt bridge will start shipping in mid/late Oct.

    5) New 90ft Deck Girder bridge will be available w/wo side walkways and will be available in Nov.

    6) New 120ft Deck Girder bridge will be available w/wo side walkways and will be available in Nov.

    7) Single aspect Target Mast Signals will be shipping in Oct. These Mast Signals can be built as either a single or dual (one over) Mast Signal. The pack will come with four signals per pack and include the targets, but not the LED's.

    8) Single, Double and Triple aspect Mast Signals will be shipping in Oct. These Mast Signals can be built as either a single or dual (one over) Mast Signal. The pack will come with four signals per pack and include the targets, but not the LED's.

    Photos will be posted on the site as the models become available.

    A bit off topic but...

    Bob,
    sorry to be off topic here, but I saw your photos on the Atlas forum from the Titan cement plant in the Medley area (I'm also in south florida) do you have any photos of the 2 bay Titan America cement hoppers? I wanna do some custom decals for that nice paint job, I wanted to respond over on Atlas forum but I have never been able to successfully set up an account!
    also looking forward to the new Traincat products of course!
    my best,
    Jan

    boB, would there be any interest in a PRR 5 track signal bridge? Those who want to be prototypical could use them with a branch or siding coming into a junction, and those who want wider track spacing could use it as a 4 track bridge. The only trouble I see in this is that IIRC while I am aware of 6 track signal bridges, I don't know if there was such a thing as a 5 tracker--at least outside the NEC. I should check my photos, but I won't have them available for a couple of weeks.

    Hi Dave,
    According to the std plate, PRR had up to 8-tracks bridges. The four track was designed to accomodate 4 tracks at 1.25" spacing. You could squeeze 5 tracks in at 1" spacing. I would have to do the artwork to see what the yield would be with 5 tracks, but I would need orders to cover the mins (don't know what those are yet). I'll look into it when I have a chance.
