    Default Cantilever Signal Bridge

    Looking for something with a small footprint like this:

    Obviously Atlas is not making them which makes me wonder why they bothered with BLMA. Additionally NJ International has nothing, and my internet searches come up fruitless.
    Thanks.

    That would work just fine. Just need to figure out signal heads.

    FWIW, I bought some cheap (e.g. $7 for 5 signals) units on eBay. They were the signal head on a brass tube type signals. For the ones I put on the bridge I just carefully removed the head (desoldered) from the tube, ran the wires down the center of the cantilever bridge and thens soldered the head to the bridge. The whole bridge becomes the ground when you do this method, so a wire needs to be attached to the base of the bridge for ground. Works great. I could probably get a picture this evening.
