I think individual threads would be more appropriate. Especially sense some threads involving something about Wig Wags already exist.

Well to be fair there is a good chance that newer members of the forum who aren't familiar to the site are probably not familiar with what Dan's Wigwag site is.

I created this topic to center most of the discussion of Wig Wag signals in one centralized thread. If such a topic is deemed to general in nature, I am willing to repurpose this thread if necessary. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ANYWAYS, to kick of this thread I will share with you this very informative site dedicated to Railroad Signals. This site includes vintage Brochures and Catalogues from various Signal Companies from the early 20th Century. http://www.rrsignalpix.com/ One of these brochures is from the Western Railroad Supply Company. Under the section "Autoflag" Signals, various models of Wig Wag Signals are shown. http://www.rrsignalpix.com/pdf/WRRS_1927_ocr_sec.pdf

Dude, what's with all the dashes in your posts? It makes them hard to read when you do that. :Blink:

Yea, please don't include unnecessary dashes in your post at least without line breaks before and after.

Adding at least line breaks would turn this:

What other formats do you use to make you have to use dashes on the internet? :Blink:
