MastHeightMast heights varied on the prototype railroads from 12 feet to 29 feet. Tell us what height you need. Height is measured from the bottom of the base to the centerline of the top head.

We recommend:

  • 16 – 18 feet for mast mounted 3 color or searchlight
  • 18 – 20 feet for bracket mount, single head
  • 20 – 24 feet for bracket mount, double head

PRR masts were always 24 feet from base to centerline (H – dimension)
B&O masts vary from 15 to 20 feet from base to centerline=e (H – dimension). We supply an “H” dimension of 17 feet unless a taller mast is specified.
