    Wanted to get on here and check out things. Started by looking at signaling aspects since I picked up some searchlights that were on the frisco line in Missouri when they were all changed out with newer signaling. Currently working on getting a dual set put back on a mast in the yard and wired into a controller. Have a 3rd setup as a dwarf and it is already wired into a controller and operational on all three aspects timed. The mast mounted ones im excited about getting working since the bottom has a hard to find lunar in with the mechanism. Waiting on hardware to arrive so I can get the bottom mounted

    I have finally got everything mounted and both heads controlled by a single Arduino and a couple of relay boards. As of right now, it cycles from

    red/red
    green/red
    red/red
    red/green
    red/red
    red/lunar
    red/red
    amber/green

    Going by the signal rules book posted here, it seems those are valid signal combos the Frisco used. I do not have any flasher relays so I can not do that option. And I believe I have a new addiction on collecting signals now much to the enjoyment of my wife
