We were over that way during the Convention and were able to shoot them. A shame for aesthetics and history, but I'm sure the signal maintainers are very happy about having modern, reliable signaling systems to work with.

Subject: Last N&W CPL Signals in Tidewater Coming Down

The N&W signals at the West End Portlock interlocking in Chesapeake, VA will soon be retired from service. These are the last N&W color position light installations in the Tidewater area. The closest ones will now be at Jenkins, some 133 miles to the west.
