New York Central Signal Bridge

Post by Notch 8 » Tue Mar 13, 2018 9:50 pm

I suspect that the signal bridge at CP367 Waterloo Indiana is not long for this world as signal crews are putting the final touches to the PTC system and the cutover is soon to follow and the NS Chicago Line is just going to be another Class 1...

The siganal bridge at CP367 was taken down this morning. I was lucky and did the the signal for track 2. Question: When was that signal bridge installed ? Someone dated it 1958-60 but i'm thinking that it is older.. curious..

An end of an era !

I will miss seeing that signal bridge as I fly over on I-69. The lower signals will be harder to see.

The mind staggers to think how many trains have been governed by that signal since the time of its installation.
