  1. Thank you all for your excellent explanations.

  2. Oops, bad proof reading.
    The signal would have been a triple target (because conceivably a train could be routed into the passing track and would require a restrictive signal).

  3. Classic – and typical of the period, thanks Dave !!
    Early U25B’s had the single-piece windshield ( that did not open ! ), while later ones had the split windshield.
    The interlocking signal was 2 targets with the off-set “target” being the train order signal.
    If it was dark (unlit) there was nothing on the hoop.

  4. Hey…. I want around then:) thanks for the explanation and sharp eye Rob. It was a question though :)

  5. I guess I got sucked in. If the window did split, then where is the frame at the split? It would not be waterproof. I checked the original slide scan full size and pretty sure you are right Rob in that it is the reflection of the pole.

  6. Come on… the front window doesn’t open Steve! It’s the reflection of a pole.

  7. Thanks Rob, more to come. Steve, you could be right. It looks like the window is open a bit.

  8. Also i’d love to see what those signals looked like from the other side…..

  9. That cyclops window is neat. It also looks like it’s in the open position. They opened?????

  10. Oh Dave. The pain… you Sir have some fantastic photos.
