Signal Replacement/PTC Project Peru to Blakesley WABASH

Unread post by LakeATCS »

Well as if the signal projects on the Marion District and the Chicago Line are not enough, here is another one.

The entire section from PERU IN to BLAKESLEY OH is getting a PTC signal upgrade.

Every MCP outside of Fort Wayne is getting redone from scratch. That means all the remaining Wabash search lights will be going bye bye. (one exception so far)

All the intermediates, and the existing MCPs in Fort Wayne are getting PTC antennas. The MCPs of course are getting the higher dual antenna sticks.

Also I saw a higher dual stick antenna at Junction. But that one is on the ex PRR line in Fort Wayne.

Those annoying unbonded sidings on the Wabash north of Fort Wayne are finally getting track circuits.

ST Joe may keep it's searchlights for the Northbound NS. I saw no evidence of work there. (mind you who would know with all the stuff there CSX left after the BIG derailment there)

CP Mode signals were upgraded a couple years back, CP Montpelier is getting new signals, plus there are a bunch of "New" installations going in along the line as well.

From what I am seeing via ATCS, the old signals should be gone at Peru Junction to Lagro on the Wabash.

No changes at Wabash/CP58, but those were newer signals anyway.

Replacement is underway. Get any and all photos you want of anything left. The Grim Reaper has begun.

There was a new antenna installed between Munson and North Morenci a few weeks ago as well.

An update.

Huntington, Mardenis, West Roanoke, and East Roanoke are now cut over.

So the searchlight bracket mast should now be gone.

Test addresses seen for Hugo and Mike
