No matter where the 80's Santa Fe searchlights may be, BNSF appears ready to hunt them down like these ones in Texas.
Moving down south, somehow NS keeps finding more Southern Rwy signals to replace such as these near Thomasville.
More signs of waste down in Southern territory with this freshly painted Southern mast signal already flagged for replacement at Villa Rica, GA.
NS had long been replacing signals on the Chicago Line, but here at CP-379 if you look closely, a more modern bracket mast in the opposite direction appears to have been spared. Keep an eye out on that one.
This classic NY Central 4-track gantry in Elyria, OH will not be so lucky.
I finally found an example of NS not throwing away old signal structures on a line in Tennessee. If you look carefully you can see the modern style gantry is one of the first generation varieties. It is also not a cantilever.
With the decline in coal traffic one even wonders why NS is investing in its former N&W region. The mixed PL/CL cantilever is well represented in railfan photography.
We leave off with a little comic relief in the form of a pair of new Darth Vaders near Montreal that are mounted on what have to be some of the tallest signal masts I have ever seen. I'm assuming there's a clearance issue, but I'm not sure what it would be.
