Gas Lit TSR Warning Board

Fastline Simulation: Initial render of a 1970s TSR gas lit warning board for RailWorks Train Simulator 2012.
As we spend most of our RailWorks time in the 1970s and 1980s it seemed only right that we had a set of TSR signage that was appropriate to the era.

The pre-battery signs were gas lit using propane and by the early 1970s were flood lit rather than using internal lamps in the board itself. Reference photographs of the boards have been hard to come across and there seem to have been a wide selection of designs.

The board shown here has fittings for dual speeds if required and the gas bottle box is currently solid with the mesh to be added during the texturing phase.
