The pole line contractor is working in the Marion town limits right now, and heading east.  These guys are going kinda slow too.
As for getting a surplus signal, good luck!  A signal maintainer told me I'd have better luck getting an act of congress than getting a signal.  He was not kidding!  I had to write several letters to get someone to respond to me.  I finally had to say something like "I have seen many items at RR shows and flea markets.  How does someone get this stuff?"  They responded to that.  Normally, they want to sell you their "junk" by the carload.  Hmmm, maybe I should put a siding in my back yard, huh?

Good evening, Ben and all:

If anyone learns about a surplus sale of signals or
roadway signs, please let us (and especially me) know.
I'd like to add some examples to a Boyce station

Also, Ben, where is the code line removal contractors
now. Does anyone know where they are on the
Shenandoah Division?

Best wishes,
