Possibly the last Searchlights on the Cal-P
Author: JGFuller

Searchlights at Davis CA, on UP (SP) Martinez Sub. Believe these are the last of their kind on the Cal-P. Looking east toward Sacramento. 4 Jul 2019.

There should be one to the west as well on the Y with three.

If I'm not mistaken Cal Northern controls the interlocking at Davis. This would have been leftover from the SP days when the Tehama-Davis /Cal-P conection was controled from the tower onsite.

Some of the Davis searchlights were installed in the mid 90's. Just before the mearger. The SP and the state were doing station upgrades.

There are searchlights also at West Davis and Tower [top of CFNR wye].

The three control points at Davis are controlled by UP.

From California Northern TT No. 8, March 30, 2008:
"CFNR trains at Davis must contact UP dispatcher 62 ... to request permission to enter Martinez Subdivision at East Davis and West Davis."
It's possible but unlikely that these instructions have changed.

UP Dispatcher 262 controls the signals at Davis. There are control point at West Davis RV075, East Davis, RV077, and the top end of the wye RV076.
