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

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

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

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

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

  6. 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.

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

  8. 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.

  9. 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).

  10. Thank you all for your excellent explanations.
