The first one is my Klein Tools electrical nippers. I have had these forever and believe at one time they were my dad's back when I was building a crappy layout in the basement in my late teens. These do it all. Pull nails, strip wire, cut Kadee trip pins, cut wire, cut wood, pull staples are a few. I would be lost without them. The bent shape them makes perfect for pulling nails out of the road bed. The thing is, I have never sharpened them once in all these years.

Here are the two signals down on the east end of the layout. They are a simple 3 light signal from Tomar. They have been hooked up to toggles and are ready to go.
