Information. During the last 25 years, it was commonplace for a railroad to replace broken glass lenses with newer plastic ones. However, over time, plastic lenses are aged by the sun and turn completely opaque, a far cry from the original railroad specification for high light transmission. Original glass replacement lenses for missing, broken, or scratched semaphore spectacles have been almost entirely unavailable in any quantity. Until now.

To meet our customers needs, we are offering glass semaphore lenses (produced by the original manufacturer) in the three most common colors used during the last century. These authentic glass semaphore lenses (8-3/8" convex roundels) are available in RED, YELLOW, and GREEN, and meet with original AAR color specifications. These lenses are IDENTICAL to those originally supplied to the railroad industry (1920 to 1960). Our manufacturer has dusted off the original molds and is making one more run of glass semaphore lenses.

We are inviting you to take this unique opportunity to properly restore the semaphore signals which you currently have on public display, or may have stored away because of the lack of quality lenses. Unlike plastic lenses, these original glass lenses never lose their shine or clarity. A new set of authentic glass semaphore lenses will revitalize your historic signal display, bringing back the magic of the last century of signalling!
