Signal Relay at Rail Yard Studios

We've made some friends over the years doing what we do, and they often look out for us and offer us the chance to stretch our imaginations a bit.

For example, we wound up in possession of some old signal relays recently courtesy of one of our fans.

They are really neat with a tough plastic shell and seriously heavyweight materials. These little jewels date back nearly 50 years to 1966 as near as we can tell from the labeling. You have to think that the same function thousands of these performed for a half century are now being performed by a single little chip.

Now we're still thinking on exactly what to make of these, but we've got a few ideas already.

If you have a thought, we'd sure love to hear about it.
