Gauntlet at Roselle Park

Postby ExCon90 » Wed Oct 15, 2014 2:15 pm

A question has arisen in another forum (but this one will reach more people who would know): When the Aldene Plan took effect a station was established at Roselle Park with a high-level island platform, with a gauntlet track on one side to enable freight cars to clear the platform. I think I remember reading at the time that a special aspect involving lunar white was added to the home signals at each end to indicate when the route was lined for the gauntlet. Does anybody know what aspect was displayed for the straight route vs. the gauntlet?

they were regular signals, for the lehigh line, with a lunar indicator for the gauntlet. so, a clear was a clear, approach, etc. the ttsi shows the signals, and instructions for running against the platform at roselle park.
