The CPL's are being dismantled by local scrap dealers per CSX. We tried contacting the railroad directly for the name of these dealers, however, they would not release their names. If fortunate to find or observe a dealer removing the CPL, you could negotiate a purchase directly and legally. Does anyone have knowledge of such dealers, either their name or address, along any recent sections of the railroad where signals have be removed?
