PRR signal bridges
« on: March 18, 2012, 12:18:47 PM »
Not sure what forum to post this in.  I recently ordered a pair of Oregon Rail Supply HO four-track PRR-style signal bridges for my layout.  Next I will be ordering at least one set of PRR mast signals to give me more flexibility.  Now I'm on the hunt for some prototypical photos (recent or back in the day) of these signals in operation.  The bridges are of the "lines west" style, with the rounded upper corners and heavy sheet steel joiners between the posts and bridge beams.  I've used google image search and have found a few good images, but I thought I'd tap the collective genius and photo collections of forumers here to see if there might be additional images for me to reference. 

Here's a photo of someone else's completed model 4-track bridge:


Has anyone else purchased/assembled these signals?  Any photos of those, too?

Thanks!

I know of 4 such bridges between Englewood (south chicago) and Whiting, IN on the NS Chicago Line.
