Crouse Hinds GS Controller

Got this beauty from Utica's past. A Crouse Hinds GS 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... Continue Reading →

Well, They’re All Up

Easter was this past Sunday. Thankfully my son and son-in-law were both here. We were able to move the Crouse Hinds D (the yellow one far left) and put the monster Deco D (center picture) up and hanging finally. The Deco weighs well over 100 lbs. Took 3 of us to get it into position... Continue Reading →
