Here is one of my newer signals. I acquired it in January of 2018. A Crouse Hinds Type D traffic signal. This one is from the area where I grew up. New Hartford, NY. This was at the corner of Oxford Rd and Sanger Ave. I remember this from my childhood and was there from sometime before 1970. That’s when I moved there.
Here’s a couple pictures of it in the wild.
And here it is after I hung it in my basement
It has red and green LED’s in it currently and the yellow sections are what was up for many years. When I opened it up, I saw the signal was originally green. I do remember this being green when I was a kid. I’m not sure when exactly it was painted, but my memory puts it as somewhere in the early 1980’s. This signal was removed in 2015 for the village “modernization” of their 2 traffic signals.
A friend of mine tipped me off on this signal. He got another one from my childhood that was a twin to this one. It’s pretty neat to have something I passed under 100’s of times in my childhood.
UPDATE April 2018. Got home a little early from work. Got done with the nightly chores and took the electronic controller out of my outdoor signals and re-wired it to this signal. I got the controller a year ago. It’s programmed to mimic the old time electromechanical controllers from Crouse Hinds. Took about an hour to get it all squared away but here’s a video of it running like it did when I passed under it for so many years.
