Remarks & Notes 
A run of the mill commuter train passing in the night was not a common scene on the Southern Railway's LL Branch, in fact a passenger train would have been an oddity after the Great Depression. Somewhat more common were passenger trains on the CNO&TP, where the signal previously called home, but not push pull commuter trains. Never the less, this combination of elements came together well and they look pretty neat together. The signal bridge is a fine example of the CNO&TP specific variation on the Southern Railway's home built structures constructed from old boxcar center sills. Volunteers at the Bluegrass Railroad Museum have recently restored and erected the bridge on their line for preservation and display purposes. Thanks to the generosity of Norfolk Southern Corporation for allowing the museum to preserve this piece in its entirety. This was one of the more frequently photographed signals in the Lexington area when in use on the NS due to a railfan friendly parking area next to a public grade crossing in the middle of the Control Point.
