Its 2020 & Lots of Goodies Coming Soon

Is this really my first post of 2020? Guess so. Must be a while since anything founds it's way to the signal retirement home. So I guess January will be filled with pedestrian signals. Thats ok with me. They aren't as big, heavy and bulky as the 4 way signals I'm used to getting the... Continue Reading →

Signal Photos Of The Area

It's a work in progress. Putting together a map of all the photos I've taken or come across of signals in the area. It may take a while since I've got quite a few photos. This will be a good repository for them all. Enjoy! Clicking on the icon will open it in a new... Continue Reading →

Crouse Hinds Brass Plate

Guess what. It's not a traffic light for once. It's a Crouse Hinds Plate instead. No idea what this was from. I've asked around and heard a few suggestions. It's an engraved brass plate (engraved huh?) that is 3" x 6". I would assume it was mounted to some kind of box, probably a shipping... Continue Reading →

Living Room Signals

Been a while since I did an update here. Hooked up a bunch of new signals in the living room. Added the GE 4 Way and Crouse Hinds Porthole to the Utica, NY PCN-100 controller I have. The Canajoharie Darley was already hooked up to it. The Seneca Falls Harrington Seaberg has it's own electronic... Continue Reading →

Harrington Seaberg #2

Another traffic light in the kitchen. Complete with magnetic letters on the fridge courtesy of my grandson. This signal pretty much fell into my lap. Someone contacted me through the website. Showed me a couple pictures of the light. I was figuring I'd have to make the trek to Eastern Massachusetts to get it, but... Continue Reading →

Old Time Utica

Utica, NY was once a thriving city of over 100,000 residents. Today is is a shell of it's former self with most large manufacturers like GE, Chicago Pneumatic and hosts of other large manufacturers gone. With the decrease in population comes less cars and the need for less traffic control devices. Utica still has many,... Continue Reading →

Utica/Rome Signal Meet 2019

Had some fellow signal collectors up. We went on the hunt for cool signals and any other old stuff we could find. Was a really good time! Just a start. I'll be adding more soon. Downtown Utica, NY.These beautiful old buildings will soon be bulldozed in the name of "progress" (it's a joke) to build... Continue Reading →

What’s It Worth??

What is my signal worth??I get asked that many times. At least once a week actually. Answering that question is very hard to be honest.Figuring out the worth from a description of the signal is pretty much impossible. If there are pictures that helps. But, pictures of the outside front and back, the indides, wiring,... Continue Reading →
