Not the same pole... look carefully at the upper mount (it's a shelf on an
I-beam for the semaphores vs a dual I-beam for the CPLS), the mount used at
the base. The siding at Wysor already had an exisiting pole (that siding was
separate from the runaround siding in Dublin, I have a neat 1945 track
drawing of the Bagging Plant I'll have to bring down there one day)).
