OK so its not April 1st so I maybe being “serious”. My layout is L shaped about 3m by 3m max – c track. Running around the outer perimeter is a double track circuit which is “controlled” by a block operation with circuit tracks to an S88 with three signals in one direction and four in the other. The signals are of mixed evolution, viessmann, hobby, latest M MFX – with some colour light and some semaphore. Nothing very scenic or prototypical and a complete mixture of loks, etc so nothing is sacred.

So, from the “control point” at the inside corner of the L I can see everything except just one pesky signal which no matter how and where I place it you cannot see the lighting aspect. My current solution (look away if you have a weak heart) is a hobby track/yard signal 74371 on the main line facing me on the wrong way/side of the track which even for me is hardly prototypical, but at least I can see the aspect.

Any better suggestions?

Is it possible to place something white close to the signal? A wall of some sort. Try a bit of paper to check if the room is too bright to notice the color from the signal currently lighting up the paper.
CS2, 60215, 4x60174, C-tracks, LDT HSI-88, TC Gold. OneGauge Marklin and MTH, ESU ECoS 2.1 on LGB tracks. MTH 3-rail 0-gauge, DCS on GarGraves tracks. Z: Rokuhan tracks, analog or DCC+TC.
