Got this beauty from Utica’s past. A Crouse Hinds GS4 Controller. There were 2 intersections left in downtown that still had these. Both were green. This was from Lafayette & Washington Streets. This intersection has been inoperable since the early 1990’s. A building was built in the area and there was no need for the south side of this intersection anymore. This came down in 2017 after resting on the pole for close to 20 years unused.
This controller is from the 1940’s and graciously ran for close to 50 years. I haven’t fired it up just yet. It was left outdoors for a while and there was some water that had gotten inside. It really is in pretty great shape. There was a twin to this one removed from service in 2017 also. I’m going to acquire that one also to either have as parts to make 1 controller or use them both.
