Staten Island Rapid Transit (SIRT)
At one time, the Staten Island Rapid Transit company had a majority interest by the B&O RR, hence the use of CPL signals, unique in the rapid transit industry. At some point in time, the MTA renamed the SIRT to the Staten Island Railway, or SIR.
There was talk years ago, of replacing the signals, but so far, they have not. Enjoy them while you can, because this may be the only place you can go to see them, once CSX wipes them out of existence on their tracks! :-)
Look for more info on the SIRT here
