|NA "Tower" looking east in 2004|
|Plywood, fresh in 2004, would still be in place in 2014.|
The dwarf stack is of the G/Y/L/R design for slow speed routes. Note the distant signals to BYRD interlocking in the background.
Wider view showing the MARC platform (accessed by the station track) and the main tracks with a passing freight train.
When I got there only the concrete mounting blocks remained of the MARTINSBURG relay hut.
Here is a 2004 view of NA (aka MARTINSBURG) interlocking sans crossover and with only a single switch to its name. At least the point heating elements seem to be effective.
Unlike many other towers, wooden ones especially, NA seems to live a rather blessed existence so far escaping both arson and the rampaging bucket of an excavator. I'll conclude with this shot of NA Cabin in 2008 looking back towards the station from Amtrak's Capitol Limited.
