Bad News At CP-WORKS

The first blow to the solid block of PRR PLs has been struck at CP-WORKS.  The eastbound cantilever mast which dated from the Penn Central era is under threat from a new Darth Vader type cantilever.  Unsure at this time is if the CP-WORKS is to be completely re-interlocked or if this is just a structural integrity issue with the cantilever.  The two-track PRR era signal gantry, the pneumatic point machines and PL dwarfs all appear to be safe, but a new relay box is on site.

It is very surprising that the 1970's era tubular steel cantilever would go before the lattice gantry.  I guess there is some problem with the build quality that had it targeted for removal.
