Utica/Rome Signal Meet 2020 Part 2 – Utica

In early August I had some fellow signal enthusiasts up for a visit and we cruised around town staring up in the sky looking at traffic lights. This is part 2 of what we saw in Utica, New York. There is a lot of cool signals still around. They're cool if you're a fan of... Continue Reading →

Old Time Utica #2

I've always had a thing for anything from Utica, NY from it's golden age. Utica was once one of the top 10 populous cities in New York and a great hub for transportation since it was in the center of New York State. So with a city having a large population, comes the need for... Continue Reading →

Small March 2020 Video Update

The Utica M Cluster

This monster was actually the very first cluster I got a long time ago. It was actually in 2014. That's 5 years, but in signal years, it's really only like 1 year. I had met up with some guys through a Facebook group. I went on a signal pickup with them and spotted this light.... Continue Reading →
