Dear Listers,

I eagerly echo Ben's request for N&W signal tower supports.

A few years back, Mainline Modeler magazine printed some articles on
prototype N&W signals, with scale drawings of the support towers,
apparently identical to the one in Ben's photo. Regrettably, the
publication became defunct before they printed any articles detailing
how to actually build the model.

HO and O scale N&W signals are high on my modeling wish list!
