Signal Bridge

Postby IRN750 » Mon Sep 29, 2008 2:29 pm

Just for everyones info NS cut down some of the last RDG signal bridges this past week. The signal bridge at the west end of Abrams yard and W&N Jct. in Birdsboro. I don't know of any others standing on NS terrritory. All the ex Rdg signals between Birdsboro and Phoenixville will be gone soon the NS signal dept have been busy putting up new signals between these points. The new signals aren't in service yet but I understand they will be soon.

The signal Bridge at W&N Jct was less than 1/4 mile from the old tower at Bird
