I see the problem ... initially the old plate was reused (I have a photo from last October that shows it). The current plate is
much worse. (I had not seen the sign since last October - I didn't realize that it had been changed.)
It is interesting to see the lower signal head in use at 166 and 121 - although seeing those signals while not on a train isn't easy. Steps toward getting the rest of the signals working between Michigan City and Grandview.
In other notes for those who have not seen them:
The new Grandview signals are in place and active in both directions. An exact replacement for the old ABS signals 31 amd 32 (no number signs as they are absolutes). The new dwarf signal for leaving the freight yard remains bagged (and for the second weekend NS has their Grandview road crossing torn up).
The signal support for the new westbound main line signal at Shops is in place ... no signal heads yet. The dwarfs for the yard leads are in place and bagged.
No other changes noted between Michigan City and South Bend.
102 was set out across the track from the platform yesterday evening. I occasionally forget that track is electrified.
