Railroading as it Once Was: When Center Street in Youngstown Had a Variety of Signal Types

Younstown Center Street

Like railroad signals? If so, then Center Street in Youngstown was the place to go to see a variety of them.

Take a look around this scene. There is a Pennsylvania Railroad style position light signal, a target signal and Baltimore & Ohio style color light position signals.

At left is CH Tower and the Chessie System yard. The train is a Conrail local sorting out idler cars.

The lead unit is a former Penn Central Alco C425 that still wears its PC livery, albeit modified, and carries its PC roster number.
