A couple more signals in Carson CA possibly defunct

Post by gamefan » Fri May 15, 2015 8:38 pm

Hey everybody, been a while since I've been on here. Just reporting on a few crossings that might be defunct

Santa Fe #2 looks to be defunct, recently while passing by Santa Fe #1 and #2 both signal sets have the lights oddly folded in a way that they are facing each other instead of facing toward the road, also Santa Fe #2 is blocked off in the same way as Santa Fe #1.

Also while looking at Google Map viewing those tracks I did notice part of the track by 208th street is missing which makes me think that Del Amo #2 and Del Amo #2 depot might be defunct as well.

Thanks for the info. There's a good chance that a couple of the crossings you mentioned might be defunct.
There should be a legal limit as to how humid it can be on any given day during the summer here in the South...

No problem, I've passed by Santa Fe #1 and 2 and noticed both are blocked off and the signal lights are facing each other rather than toward the street and my findings on google map regarding Del Amo #2 and #2 Depot

hey all, sorry for the necropost but I have a further update for Santa Fe #1 and #2. The two lines are indeed out of service. They have signs on them that read that.

Here's Santa Fe #1. This one looks to have had the lights folded in between February 2011 and September 2014.

Also, not too far away is this strange signal.

I'm willing to bet that was a wig wag at one time. They reused the pole.
