Hello, Jeff. 
I recently cycled the rail trail there. 
They left all the old signal bases and milepost markers alongside the trail, so if you wanted to, you could find out where the milepost it started and ended. Then figure out how far each signal stand is from the mileposts. 

Unfortunately, that is all the information I have on this.

Can anyone provide the name of each interlocking and what their respective milepost designation was?  There appears to have been a short passing siding at Farmville and possibly one at Rice as well.  I pose the same question about those sidings to the group.  Any idea when they were removed from service?
