So if one was modelling the N&W in that region around 1952 or so, they would want to not use semaphore and instead target signals?

    I was reading an article in Trains mag on Cincinnati Sept 2002.  Speaking on the Cinti District, they said automatic signals were installed in 1926.  I checked in the N&W Reports CD and it says the same.  I talked to a signal maintainer in 2003, and he said the signals were installed in 1946/1947.  The Reports CD says that CTC was installed in 1947 after the line changed between Peebles and Mineral Springs.

    Q; Were the 1926 signals the Semaphore type, or were they the CPLs? 


    What was the change with the signals in 1947?

    Installation of CTC with the new signals.
