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 →

It is originally from Ithaca, NY. Corner of Seneca and Cayuga Streets I'm trying to figure out a little more about it. I... Continue Reading →

The Art Deco Is Alive Again!

After quite a while, The Deco (Big Green) is back running once again. It's been sitting in the basement for quite a while and got it hanging at Easter. Took 3 of us to do it since it's really heavy. This is probably my favorite signal of the ones I've got. Saw so many of... Continue Reading →

Crouse Hinds Art Deco Type D

One of my all-time favorites (so far) is a Crouse Hinds Type D Art Deco Signal. This dates from more than likely the early 1950's (which is older than me lol) although I'm not sure of a specific year. From what I can find, these were around $900 or so brand new. This was the... Continue Reading →
