 click images

Cute little box type signal lamp that lights up when plugged inn. Lens is only 4 inches across so it would make a fine kitchen table lamp to have dinner by or just hang on the wall with a dimmer switch. Another way to re purpose this cute little lamp is to make a front porch light out of it or use it in child's bedroom over the crib as a cute night light.

Old General Railway Signal Co. rare 4 piece table interlocker device. Two tables are marked switches and two are marked signals. This is a very old BURLINGTON ROUTE signal tower collectible antique piece of railroad hardware. Fine used condition but one top handle of the 4 has come loose. Easy fix.

Comes with four original C.B.& Q. RR signal dept locks still intact on top of each and tables are numbered 1 through 4. Item is a fine, hard to come by RR artifact off the BURLINGTON ROUTE. Reluctant to part with this potentially but it is very heavy and hard for me to mange / move so I have decided to offer it up for sale...but for a price !... I am unable to easily manage this as I once did due to weight.

For Sale:  GRS 2A Semaphore Signal Parts


 click images

General Railway Signal Company model 2A semaphore signal parts for sale.  Includes large back case door for motor housing in good condition.  2nd item is the high semaphore signal bearing off a GRS 2A style signal that U bolts to a 5 inch diameter post , pipe or signal mast pole. This is only the bearing, no motor. Good condition other than some jack ass torched off the end of the shaft / spindle most likely to remove a stubborn semaphore spectacle that would not come off easily  . Obviously, this damaged the shaft end. I was going to get some cold roll steel bar stock and have it machined , shaft repaired where it would once again allow a semaphore spectacle to mount onto the spindle / shaft and then U bolt this signal bearing to a tall post and place a spectacle on it fixed at 45 degrees and make a fixed approach semaphore display amber / yellow but never got around to it. So it is up for sale if any one like to try. Great piece for an approach fixed signal display if repaired.

$150  Reduced to $100  + shipping. Can be picked up locally (Dallas). Contact for any questions using the form below.   SOLD

For Sale:  Rock Island Style B Semaphore Signal Operating Mechanism
 Reduced to $2,000


click images

Above is what these looked like in service.

Rock Island style B semaphore signal operating mechanism. Very early style motorized Union Switch & Signal Co. "rack & pinion" type, is very rare and allows a lower quadrant signal to display the yellow caution aspect where as most can only display red or green. This one is in fine used condition. This type was also used on the Milwaukee road but with an upper quad spectacle.  
Also includes the 90 degree lower quadrant spectacle that takes 6 1/2 inch lens. No blade, lens or retainer rings do I have for this restoration project. This spectacle is the rare style with no stud for a mechanical connection so it was never one half or one side of a train order semaphore signal. This spectacle was for early electric motorized semaphore signals. Very rare LQ spectacle.

$2,500 OBO Reduced to $2,000 Local pickup near Dallas TX. or can be shipped on 4 x 4 woods pallet(s) via FedEx Ground for actual freight charges. See pics attached what these looked like in service.
