Apologies for a small set, but that's the story of my life!!

A pair of animated Belisha Beacons that flash by day and night.

But why a pair? Well, pre-digital control days when everything was analogically controlled, trying to get two electrical devices to be in perfect sync when manually started (by Fred and his second mate Dave shouting "3,2,1" across the road to each other!!), at 50hZ a second, was nigh on impossible. So these two belishas will always be slightly out of sync with each other.

A wee video of them in action:


Being out of sync gives that extra little touch of realism. But there is a second realistic event that other CS makers will appreciate and marvel at that took me a long time to work out.

Yes. Just like in real life, if you cross a Belisha indicated road crossing these days, the traffic tries to run you over and totally ignores you!! Took me, ooooh!, days to add that action to the animation xml file (I of course, jest!!).

So enjoy them. I've only released them because (a) I'm proud of them, as one of my first animated light CS sets and (b) couldn't think of anything else I'm making at the moment that they would fit in with.

Just a wee touch of Old England.

For The "Green People" on these forums.
Please note that unlike the pirate flag pole included in the animated flag sets I'm making, none of StationJimJr's trees were harmed in the making of this set. Although I'm sure I bent his ear (and CF53's) a wee bit!!  ;D
Thanks lads!

Just a wee touch of Old England.
