Sad news Fail Safe signal

Yes, as many of you have heard rumors about, the last fail-safe signal (http://www.rxrsignals.com/Virginia/Elliston/Private/) is gone. I know this because of this google map link: https://www.google.com/maps/@37.2290743 ... 312!8i6656 , it used to be: https://www.google.com/maps/@37.2291406 ... 312!8i6656 .

The real question is, whatever railroad that owned it, i wonder whether they preserved it somewhere or left it to the scrapheap?

For 2019, I'll be making frequent trips back up to Kentucky, along with a few up in Ohio. I will see about getting RR Crossing Pictures in other parts of TN during 2019 as well. I may also see about getting out to South Carolina at some point for crossings as well, but that remains to be seen for right now.
