The first picture below shows the packaging the signals arrived in. The boxes are cardboard with a foam insert that protect the signals during shipment.
I removed one of the double signals and was immediately impressed with the scale fidelity and quality of craftmenship. The signals come with resistors installed and have three wires of different colors (silver, red & green) which will be a great help in installation. In order to compare the quality of the Scale Models Division to the Sunrise signals, I tape the signals to the fascia next to an already installed Sunrise signal. The picture below show the signals side by side.
As you can see, the new signals from Scale Models Division are excellent and compare nicely with the singals from Sunrise. The targets appear to be equal in size however the Sunrise have a lip around the edge. After doing some research on the web I believe the lip is prototypical for that style of signal. The Sunrise seem to be of an older style of signal than the Scale Models Division. The ladders on the SMD signals are slightly more to scale than the Sunrise and the platforms look great. The mast however on the SMD signal look to be a bit wider than Sunrise. I am not sure if this is a compromise by SMD or just a difference in prototype. Both mast look great however. SMD at this time does not offer sinals with battery boxes. However, most of the signals along the Geneva Sub are the more modern style without the battery boxes so this is not a concern to me. I will need to find a source of signal control boxes to place near the signals a la the prototype.
Overall, I am very impressed wtih the SMD signals. They are reasonably priced, but like anything in model railroading and building a layout, if you need a lot of them like I do, it can get expensive.
I will be installing them on the layout in the next few weeks and will post more pictures at that time
