I once had a full size crossing flasher, but it was to large and cumbersome in our yard. So I sold it and bought this reproduction of the Miniature Train Company signal from a gentleman locally. The flasher circuit is electronic vs mechanical in the original ones from decades ago. it is also cast alum instead of cast iron making it much lighter weight to move around. I hope one day to be able to afford one of the G12 park trains to run around our yard, but they are quite expensive if in running condition. Mike the Aspie

I know this post is a few months old, but I'm wondering if you know who manufactured this replica that the seller had (and consequently sold on to you)? I'm having trouble finding any information about it online...

I was told it was a gentleman out in California did them years ago. Using cast alum instead of iron to keep cost and weight down. They also use an electronic flasher circuit instead of the motor and contacts to make the lights flash and bell ring

Any way for me to get in contact with this gentleman should I want a few produced myself?

I believe he has passed on now. I think he took an original and made new sand molds to make the alum castings. Best bet is to watch the discover live steam website, that's where I found mine
