North of Tamaqua, Pa. New Westbound Searchlight ABS located adjacent to the Tuscarora Park Road (Route 1015) Grade Crossing. This approach lit signal governs westbound movements thru Tamaqua Tunnel about a mile in rear . Note the 2 opposite side brackets for future signal heads. I assume this will grow to include a 2 headed distant for eastbound movements thru to a new Tamaqua controlled siding that is in the works. Sort of odd having ABS territory just sort of start like this, but hey, I'm not complaining.
Near the Orchard Road Grade Crossing in Barnesville, PA we see a pair of split ABS searchlight masts standing between the Tamaqua Tunnel and Mahanoy Jct. This shows the extent of the current Mahanoy Jct signaling island.
Further up the line the old Catawissa branch, the R&N is restoring HAUCKS interlocking. Signals will be of the GRS G-head tri-light variety.
Here you can see the new eastbound distant signal going in near Greenwood Lake along former CNJ trackage close to Lake Drive Underpass.
Finally on the former Reading Main Line south of Port Clinton, PA grant money is paying for a new controlled siding between Mohrsville and Dauberville. The ends are non-interlocked now, but vintage signals may appear in the near future :-)
