Nofolk Southern to Install New Berea Signals

Norfolk Southern was expected early this week to begin setting up new westbound signals on its Chicago line at Berea. The cantilever-style signals had been placed on the ground next just west of the former BE tower. Installation and cut-in could be done on Monday (June 22), which is a light traffic day for NS.

Preliminary work in preparation for installation of the signals got underway last week. Crews poured a concrete pad that will serve as the base for the signal mast.

The new signals will replace the New York Central-style signals that have stood guard at Berea for several decades. Currently, there are two sets of signals for westbound traffic at Berea, which is known on the railroad as CP194.

One set of signals stands on the north side of Track No. 1 while a cantilever set of signals stands on the south side and slightly to the west that serve Track No. 2 and the Four Lakefront track.

The new signals, like the existing ones, will have three heads.
