Classic Railroad Signals: Semaphores, Searchlights, and Towers examines how different railroads developed specific hardware to service their unique needs, in the process tracing the lineage of various types of hardware and highlighting how and where they were used. From nineteenth-century mechanical signals to disc signals, upper and lower quadrant semaphores, three-light electric signals, searchlight-style targets, positional lights and color-position light hardware, author Brian Solomon covers nearly every conceivable piece of North American signaling hardware, even the virtually extinct wig wag. Gorgeous period and contemporary photographs are included in this 160 page hardcover book that should be on every railroad fanatics bookshelf.
