Acquiring an old Signal

Adding to Dr. Scheer's comments -- the dealer at the "Great Gaithersburg  
is a salvage contractor from Lodi, Ohio.  I think he's recently moved  to 
Chillicothe, OH.
He has many signals saved that came from the Weary Erie.  At last  years show,
he had a grade crossing signal from the Milwaukee Road which had  
frames that held a banjo style wig-wag.  If you go to Gaithersburg in  
be sure to bring the deed to your ranch.  They're expensive.
Certainly they don't command the majesty of a mast-mounted signal, but  you
may choose to consider a dwarf signal or something similar.  I have a  GRS
dwarf signal and a switch indicator (a.k.a. motor car indicator) in the  den. 
 When it
comes to weathering and mobility, they do have an advantage.
