"Signal Sunday on the B&A..."
Author: aussiehinz

Three views of CSX's Boston Subdivision, the one-time Boston & Albany main line, taken from the head end of an afternoon eastbound MBTA Worcester to Boston train in October, 2005.

Cheers,

aussiehinz


1. Passing CP 24 near Ashland MA

2. Passing CP 23 west of Framingham MA

3. Approaching the old B&A Framingham MA Station, then serving as a restaurant, upon departing MBTA's present day Framingham commuter station.

Nice shots. Those appear to be the same type signals used on the MGA district (coal) south of Pittsburgh, PA.

And in fact they are, since both were standard-issue Conrail installations from the latter part of the Conrail era.

These type signals are also located on the NS Lurgan Line. There is still a couple left that haven't been replaced yet.

Also, same type of signals are still in use in scattered areas along the line between Harrisburg-Pittsburgh as well.. Theres not that many around, just a little here and there.... NS is aggressively replacing the PRR position lights, as well as Conrail trilights.. Best closeup one is at Cresson, PA across from the Station Inn. same type signal still standing..

The NYC was an early adapter to the GRS Type G, which look very similar to these. Their line between Toledo and Berwick, Ohio, the first CTC equipped line in the world, was equipped with this style of signal.
