Digging through my files from my time working for The Shore Fast Line, I found:

A book of PRR signal department parts plans (similar to the M of W plans), index dated 2/1/1955, some plans revised later.

ConRail Phila. Division Eastern Region 1980 Block Stations & Interlockings
about 85 pages of diagrams from former PRR, RDG, PC, P-RSL, CNJ, and CR.

I will try to see if any of the Web sites that feature this stuff want to post any of it.

Some of this message will be crossposted to appropriate forums.

I have a plastic binder book called "RAILROADING WITH PENN CENTRAL" which is basic instruction on reading Pennsylvania style target signals.

I also have the ConRail reprints of the next 2 books in that series: how to read color light signals, and what both kinds of signals mean. A 4th book in the series is about cab signals.
