A distant view of the remaining signal.
Close-up of the data plate on the remaining signal, which doesn't tell us much about it.

 

According to Google Street View, the other signal had 5 remaining pairs of Modern Industries 12x20 inch lights and what appears to have been an MI mechanical bell.

However, it dissappeared sometime between 2016 and when I finally got out here in 2017, though it can still be seen on Street View. Click here to see the other cantilever when it was still standing.
