Great find Eric! Growing up and living near Lucasville, I am especially interested to hear more about this type of gate. Plus a bonus picture of the Scioto Street crossing (today named the Robert Lucas Road crossing) in 1950. Thanks!!

I present before the masses the fascinating tale of N&W use of red neon tubes on crossing gate arms.

The article attached lists several locations where these signals were installed, did it ever grow much past these initial installations?

Fascinating stuff...
