Erie Railroad switch stands

Postby walterconklin » Fri May 09, 2014 8:25 am


Does anyone have an image(s) and/or ideally an engineering drawing(s) that show what an Erie Railroad switch stand with a lantern looked like? I am particularly looking for images and engineering drawings of Erie Railroad switch stands in use from the 1920s to the 1940s. I am in need of this reference material for a modeling project. I assume that the Erie used standard high target and low switch stands with lanterns during the aforementioned period. period. Browsing the archives for the Erie Lackawanna email list, I read a message that the Erie used Ramapo switches.
