IMG_3603Greetings from London;

 

i recently bought the attached signal. It appears to be complete. 

It is a remote switch; the lights show red if the track is dead, or green if it is live- the centre is illuminated at all times. I can't locate a wiring diagram, or instructions. It is a 1404, but the metal one was replaced with a plastic one in the 1960s.  Any assistance most welcome. 

Also il looking for a source  of cloth covered wire to rewire it.

 

best

The enclosed photo may provide some assistance to you. 

As for cloth covered wire that is flexible, I can't help you. I tried 7 solid 20 ga. wires covered with vinyl on a Marx 1409, but it was too stiff. Ended up using 7 separate stranded 22 ga. wires banded together with shrink tube. Not the prettiest, but functional.

Thanks, I have found a bit more stuff. Marx made some brilliant signals. This is really an isolation switch. I'll post pictures when I get to Canada.
