I have a question about the signal at Cedar. Is this number 4491? I thought this had been replaced, as the new signals were in place at MP 449.5 two years ago unless the old signals had not yet been replaced.

Subject: Re: Pokey CPLs
Your list looks complete to me. I was on a Pokey signal construction
gang last year. The only change I can see is that we replaced Thacker
last year at the same time we did Merrimac between Rawl and Sprigg. I
was on the gang that did Thacker and the gang we were paired up with
did Merrimac. But, at times we worked together when we needed to
double up on manpower.
There are still a few here and there between Williamson and Kenova
also, but I can't remember them all exactly. I only worked that end
last summer after the Derecho storm came through and I was up on that
end filling generators for a week.
Folks, get your cameras out. The clock is ticking on all of them...
