On the topic of Florida and GRS Lex-C lights, how common are they in Florida?

On the site!
http://www.rxrsignals.com/Florida/Lake_City/Long/

Though they're probably very rare down there, as only the Southern Railway (who had very few lines in Florida) used GRS Lex-C lights here in the south, AFAIK.

but honestly what would the point be to waste a whole tank of gas just to see a railroad crossing? :CloseEye:


Only a true foamer would do that! :Tongue2:

Sorry, my name's not Alan Smith. :Wink:

Well, mine's not either but I got a job so I could pay for a trip to New Jersey (driving up there) to record old crossing equipment, and many of my day trips usually wind-up taking at least almost one tank of gas. But then again, I do have plenty of gas money, so...
There should be a legal limit as to how humid it can be on any given day during the summer here in the South...

Try having many other hobbies as well, some completely irrelevant from others.

Two sets of them on this rather classic SOU install in Westel, TN (near Rockwood, TN):

https://www.google.com/maps/@35.8599135 ... 312!8i6656

This is also on the former Tennessee Central, though the Southern Railway took over the line part of the line between Harriman and Crossville when the TC failed in 1968, though they abandoned the portion between Crab Orchard and Crossville, TN later on. The Franklin Industrial Minerals/Lhoist North America now operates a shortline over this part of the line between Crab Orchard and Rockwood, after buying the line from NS in 2002, though NS still retains (and actively uses) the rest of the former TC to Harriman. This shortline is also notable as they still use two of the last three high-hood B23-7s in service in the US, though they're typically only used to switch the mine at the north end of the line, though they'll sometimes take them out and use them along the line for special trains or if one of their other two engines (an ex-SCL B23-7 and an ex-DRGW GP35) is out of service for one reason or another:

The signals above are sadly not shown in the video.

They also have another (now mostly stripped-out) high-hood B23-7 as a parts engine that sits at the south end of the mine:
