Standard Signal Tower.
|This kit was constructed using original 1912 blueprints from the Maine Central Railroad, which were traced from 1898 blueprints of the Boston & Maine Railroad. This particular signal tower was originally built for a 20 lever Saxby & Farmer machine. Similar signal towers dotted their way across the country on many railroads. Such towers would have been located at major junctions, interlockings and terminal areas.
