Erie Railroad Semaphore—Canisteo River Valley at Cameron, New York.
I made this view during a snow squall at Cameron, New York in 1987.
This shows the old Erie Railroad mainline at the Canisteo River Road grade crossing near milepost 314, a line then operated by Conrail.
That’s my old 1973 Plymouth Scamp parked by the side of the road.
The subject of the photo is the vintage Union Switch & Signal Style-S three-position upper quadrant semaphore.
I was on an exploratory trip of the Canisteo River Valley that contributed to many photographs of trains in this supremely scenic area.
