This new yard limit sign was installed yesterday at Hill Yard, where west end of the Cotton Belt
dumps into the SP mainline at Corsicana Tex.  Beam me up, Scotty .....

Isn't that "Yard Limit" sign upside down?  [I'm asking.]

Good night, somebody can't even figure out how to install a Yard Limit sign - that's bad. (And yes, it is upside down.)

Or, using "callum_out's" comment about this being an international sign of distress, considering all the cost cutting, bringing in a new COO for that purpose, combining trains to create even bigger trains, running off a lot of business because it doesn't "fit the operating plan", maybe somebody is trying to tell us something.

They used only one screw and the heavy part of sign assumed its natual  gravity  position.

Maybe that's the lower limit?
