Photos of a Japanese Signal Station?


Recommended Posts

Anyone know of either photos or a good japanese search term for one of these signal stations. I want to paint my Tomix Signal box as I think it looks super plasticky. I'd like to have a prototype picture to guide paint choice.

My go to of using the JP hobby search text seems to have failed me, but it looks like yokohama station still has some, although they seem to have been converted to crew break rooms.

At least in the Kanto area JR stations, the signal boxes (which are either now unmanned or converted to other uses), are colored a light beige or tan color, with a tinge of yellow.  The Tomix molded color seems a tad too dark, but that might just be the lighting.

 

The Tsurumi Station signal box, on the Yokohama (down) end of the Keihin Tohoku Line platform:

Kamata Station, also down end:

Thanks. I'll go with a beige. Any thoughts about the roof?

 

I'll probably light mine and put a figure inside. He can be an IT guy checking the automated signals.

Any thoughts about the roof?

Aerial views show a off-whitish color roof with a tinge of blue. Definitely not the generic concrete color.
