The theme for October was also suggested to me by Rob Gosling. (BTW, I always appreciate receiving suggestions for Gallery Themes.)

As the title suggests, the this month's theme is Signal Towers and Manned Crossings. All photos, both model and prototype that have a signal tower or manned crossing it it are welcome.

Once again want to caution everyone to keep copyright issues in mind. If you didn't take the picture, it isn't yours to post. Links to photos on the web are allowed, however.

In consideration for those on dial-up, please keep your photos to 80KB or smaller.

Maine Central train #390 "The Oil Can" hauls tanker traffic to the interchange with the Boston and Maine. An ardent railfan has captured the action at the Boundary Road level crossing.



Meanwhile, a second railfan snags this shot on another day as the train is on its approach to North Dover Yard. Note the crossing shanty.

A Boston and Maine GP9 "Bluebird" crosses Boundary Road on my B&M layout.



The setting sun adds a unique lighting element to the scene as an outbound train departs North Dover.

Tower A at the throat of the yard in Waterville, Maine, with an empty New Brunswick (Canada) to Dakota oil unit train passing westbound. This location is also the junction of the Back Road (left) and Lower Road (right) mainlines.
