Hello all,
There is a new signal at Marion, Virginia. I haven't gotten a good look at it yet, but it appears to be a new safetran signal. It is setting on the ground at the Marion section house.

It's possible that NS is finally going to replace the old East End Marion signal (now known as Schuleen). The bracket for the two signal poles is in terrible shape. The flange is cracked, and has a clamp bolted around it. There is also an out of service switch at Schuleen that was totalled by a semi truck collision last winter. The new rail and ties are ready and waiting. Its possible we'll see some upgrades to Schuleen soon.

I'll try to find out more about what kind of equipment they have, and see if the new location is stenciled on it.
