The information that you seek on PLS on the Hagerstown
District can be found in the "Nuggets from the
Archives" that appeared in the Nov/Dec 2002 issue
of THE ARROW.  A couple of excerpts follow:

    "The first wayside Position Light Signals on the
N&W were placed in service February 1924 between
Shenandoah, VA, and Hagerstown, MD, on the
Shenandoah Division."  The next installation of
wayside Position Light Signals on the N&W was between
Shenandoah and Roanoke, VA, ...placed in service
December 15, 1926...."

I hope this helps.
