Techachapi Station signal display shortly after many of these signals were saved

That "fellow" hired me in 1979 in the signal dept. Bill Stokoe was a great guy.

Many of these signals are still functional through a control panel nearby. There is a video on YouTube showing some of these signals working.

What railroad did signal numbers that way, with individual numerals and no background?

I've seen some on NKP/N&W like that. One near Chicago I recall.They were US&S color light signals, not semaphores.
