RAILROAD SIGNALStof the U.S.




The new and the old.
New colorlight signals waiting for the cutover at Bailey's Wye in Baltimore.
According to signal maintainers at the wye, it is now scheduled for May 2014.
When the time comes, a crane will lift the new signals off the base and rotate the cantilever bridge 90 degrees,
and cut the old one down.  More pictures here

 

Bienvenue.  Pour tous ceux qui sont en train de visiter mon site.  Je suis désole, mais je ne maîtrise pas la langue Française pour pouvoir traduire mes pages en Français.  Mais il existe un excellent site sur la signalisation canadienne et américaine par Martin Lévesque à: http://regle105.quebectrain.com/

See my new stuff list at the bottom of the page....

     

     

 

       

Please note: This and all of my pages are done with Frontpage, a Microsoft product.
  If you use a non-uS browser such as Mozilla or Firefox, I can not guarantee that you will see the pages the way I designed them.....

In case you're wondering, I use Snagit to do my screen captures,
Check them out, it's a great program!


I try to live my life in a good way, trying my best to be considerate of others, and not screwing them over...
There are people out there that do not care about you and me the same way,
So, if you're looking for a cable box to buy outright and avoid paying the high rental fees that Comcast, Verizon and others charge,
Please check out  this page before you buy to avoid one scam,
Especially noteworthy, they are now trying to sell you a generator that "makes free electricity",
But it takes a 50HP motor (37.3 KW) to produce 30 KW!


Note: my pages are "done" using Frontpage, so if you use a non Microsoft browser (as 64% of you do),
you may not see the page exactly the way I designed it.
Here are some interesting stats (from both of my sites) on visitors from 21JUL2012:


Please note, we have moved on from SITEMETER to GOOGLE ANALYTICS to STATCOUNTER
Sitemeter was not maintaining the account and stats have remained stagnant for the past 6 months!
Google's was nice, but way to complicated, and couldn't use one counter for both sites, so we'll see.....
