Fixed The Sagging Span Wire Setup

My span wire setup in the back yard had some issues over the winter. Last summer we fixed it all up, poles were straight, signals were high enough off the ground that I could mow under them. But this spring, the screw in the ground anchors came most of the way out of the ground... Continue Reading →

Utica NY Snow Emergency Light

Hello 2021. Been a long time in between posts. With the pandemic affecting my business, signal hording has come to a screeching halt. A couple things here and there, but for the most part, I'm not even looking for anything. Sucks but what can I do. Anyway............. A couple of wild Utica Snow Emergency Lights...

Crouse Hinds PCN Controller #2

I picked up another Crouse Hinds PCN-100 Traffic Signal Controller a month or so back. Here it is having it's first hug in a long time. This is another from Utica New York. My favorite place to get them from as you probably already know. There were upwards of 50 of these on the streets... 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 →

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 →

Utica Signal Hunt August 2018

Went out with a group of signal enthusiasts on the hunt for some old signals. I was aware of their locations, some I haven't seen in a few years. It was good to see some old stuff still up!! Varick Street & Columbia Street, Utica, NY. The pedestal bases are the only ones surviving in... Continue Reading →

Harrington-Seaberg #1

I was tipped off about this signal from a fellow collector (who by the way, has some great looking signals). He spotted it on Craigslist. I contacted the seller, made arrangements to take a look at it (I already had my mind set that I was coming home with it. Trust me!) and we took... Continue Reading →

Tokheim Traffic Signal

Another new addition in March 2018 to the collection. This is a Tokheim Model 1200 Traffic Signal I acquired. The seller was in Cleveland, Ohio. I found out he purchased the light from an antique dealer in 1990 and has held onto it ever since. Tokheim signals were produced from 1926 onward. In 1938 this division... Continue Reading →
