PRR Position Signals Continue to Fall in Pittsburgh

Online reports indicate that the former Pennsylvania Railroad position light signals were removed from service at CP Leets on the Fort Wayne Line of Norfolk Southern last weekend with more position light signals slated to fall soon in the Pittsburgh area.

Reports indicated that new signals are to be turned on between CP Penn and CP Bell this weekend.

Pennsy signals between CP Leets and CP Solomon will also be falling soon.

One report is that position light signals are still operating on the Connemaugh Line at CP Leech, CP Alum and CP Toms.

As part of the change in signaling, intermediate position light signals between CP Leets and downtown Pittsburgh will be removed from service and not replaced with new signals.

The route between Conway Yard and Harrisburg will have cab signals and positive train control.

A similar signal system is in effect on the Fort Wayne Line and Cleveland Line to Cleveland west of Conway.
