Toy railway signal cabin, Hornby No.2 signal cabin, 0-gauge, metal, made by Meccano Ltd, Liverpool, England, 1949-1955 The Hornby No.2 signal cabin is a two storey tin-printed, tin plate building with curved windows and a tin printed door set in brickwork on the ground floor. A fitted set of stairs leads to an upstairs floor which has cut-out windows on three sides providing a good view up and down the track for the signal man. The upstairs tin-printed timberwork is bright yellow and the windows and trim are picked out in green. The roof is green and the ground floor brickwork is red with white mortar. The No.2 signal cabin differs from the No. 1 signal cabin in that the former is fitted with real steps rather than printed ones and cut out windows. In Australia signal cabins are called signal boxes.
