Its body was still there, but it had seen much better days (see photo).

Last I knew, the signals at Jewell (north end of the siding that starts
at LArk) were still CPLs, although they are probably hard to see from
the road in the summertime with the leaves on the trees. But that may
have changed since the last time I was there, since I didn't know that
NS had removed the switch and power derail from the storage track at
Lark until I saw yours photos. Was the dwarf signal coming off that
track gone as well?

The only possible CPL's remaining on the DIsmal Creek branch are at
Wyatt and Whitewood, but I'm not certain about those.
