What is that signal called on the R&N? I listen to the scanner feed for the Reading area and have heard a signal called “Rick” by train crews but don’t know exactly where it is. I pictured “Rick” to be closer to Reading in my mind than Mohrsville.
Thanks!

RICK Interlocking is the north end of North Reading Yard. The interlocking signal shown here is called MOHRSVILLE.

Is the R&N north toward Port Clinton and Tamaqua fully signalled, or are there just CTC islands at some (or all) sidings?

I also noticed a westbound automatic signal at Hometown on the line between Haucks and Jim Thorpe - how many intermediate blocks is it from there to Haucks, and does a clear on that signal indicate something is lined off this line at Haucks?
