W.S. Darley Traffic Signal

This signal also popped up on Ebay and I just knew I had to have it. More than likely from the 1940’s. A W.S. Darley D 200 12 bulb signal. original price in 1944 was $99.95 but I paid a little more than that. It came from Georgia and I know nothing about it’s history, other than it was given a sloppy coat of yellow paint over the original silver.

Darley Signal as I received it

Here is was when I got it. First time I had ever used Uship. Pretty cool and not that expensive and painless. The guy who delivered it even brought it inside for me.

It is in overall good shape. Light bulbs could be older than me. Never seen anything like it. Has what’s probably the original controller in it. Here’s a video of it running. This is also how signals used to function a long time ago.

Yes, it was in the kitchen of our house. I had to test it. and thankfully, the wife doesn’t think i’m too weird bringing traffic lights into our house.
