Lower Quadrant at Dusk

Working with my Lumix LX7, I made this view of Conway Scenic’s lower quadrant semaphore in the fading light of evening.

This is an example of a Union Switch & Signal Style-B mechanism powering twin lower quadrant blades was an early type of signal used in automatic block service and once common on Boston & Maine and Maine Central lines in New England.

Tracking the Light posts every day!

    I have always been intrigued by these North Conway semaphores; specifically I wonder why the mast is so short? Did the Conway folks cut it down when they brought it here from the railroad or was it that way in its natural habitat?

    They photograph so beautifully. Nicely done, Brian!
