Who own old N&W signals?

We were able to save a total of nine signals, relay cabinets, and parts from 
the Shenandoah Division. I might add that they were purchased, not liberated, 
from Norfolk Southern in 1997.

The Nace, VA signal was the only one removed locally that was not 
disassembled in the process by NS. It came down as one piece. This signal is currently 
resting in my back yard while waiting for a new home. It is for sale. I would 
have restored it for my driveway but I have already restored a signal that came 
from somewhere in West Virginia. This one was also legally acquired from NS. 
This signal was completely disassembled, sandblasted, repainted and rewired 
before it was installed along my driveway about 10 years ago. I can honestly say 
that it was a tremendous amount of work!

The parts are still here to reassemble several of the signals. Some have 
already been sold.

All together we were able to salvage about 23 tons of signal equipment.
