The Bethlehem 53A and 53B kits consist of a single, 3D printed body, throw arm and counterweight PLUS white- and red-tinted urethane targets and Phosphor Bronze wire to create the target spindle and connection to switch point.

NOTE (except 64-TD-1.1 and -1.3):  throw arm and counterweight are available in LEFT HAND and RIGHT HAND orientation; they cannot be repositioned and do not operate.  These are "functional" details, meaning you can link the targets to switch points to allow targets to rotate 90 degrees.

Switch stands
DO NOT operate your switch ... they are operated BY your switch if you connect the switch points to the cast urethane link.  Targets require NO PAINTING ... they are cast in white- and red-tinted urethane.  Base & target spindle (wire) require painting.

53A (low-profile) includes (5) target styles & instructions
53B (intermediate height) includes (4) target styles & instructions

Each item is designed in Solidworks 3D CAD.  Urethane casting patterns are made using Rapid Prototyping and/or 3D Printing technology.
Trackside Details (S and O)
The phone box, also named "call box", was a key ingredient in the communication system between crews and dispatchers/operators.  A box would be "planted" on posts or bolted to phone poles in strategic locations, such as diamonds, branchline junctions, interchanges and congested areas.  Remote areas with few depots also used these.  They were EVERYWHERE!

Each kit includes a 3D printed body with all braces, a 2-pc cast urethane roof and 1/2" length of blackened chain.  The post is not included but can easily be modeled with a short length of Code 70 rail or glue to a telephone pole.
