Southern's Washington Div. Time Table No. 72 (06/26/49)
indicates there were operators at the interlocking 24/7.
This staffing was in effect even though Southern operated
only three freight trains Mon-Sat, and two on Sun.

The on sight interlocking was gone by 1955, replaced by
remote control. Special Instructions in Southern's
Eastern Div. Timetable No. 2 - "Reduce speed to 10 M.P.H.
approaching and between home signals, interlocking
plant at Riverton Jct." Track charts indicate there were
no approach signals, only home signals at the crossing.
