Here are some of the raised letter sings we are making for the Echills Wood Railway
in readiness for the 7.25" AGM. The material is Moisture Resistant MDF.


Here you can see those signs being carved out of an 8' x 4' sheet.

Note that this 30,000 facility runs at 145.00 and hour without allowing for materials and drawing time. I have had requests to make similar sized signs for others with different wording, but it must be clear that the Totem signs cannot be made for less than 150.00 each, supplied unpainted.

In effect, everything we make is of pattern quality, which comes at a cost and a price.
It is not just a piece of Wood any longer!
