Search light signal DMIR

Unread postby KVERBERK » Wed May 20, 2020 7:24 pm

Did I ever show you guys my searchlight signal? A few years ago The DM&IR was replacing there searchlights and donated a bunch to the Duluth Railroad museum. The museum then sold off what they didn't use as a fund raiser. I have always liked signals and searchlights in particular. Of course I really wanted to get one of the dwarf signals from Plymouth when those were replaced. But I decided this will have to do. I fixed it up and made a small control box for it and am currently powering it with an old marine battery. I don't turn it on that much. Anyway, just thought id share it.. Also they were just selling heads and mounting hardware, no mast lol

Love it. I think the searchlights are timeless. I think it would be neat to have one. But it makes absolutely no sense for me to try to get one :lol: Thanks for sharing. The story that goes with it is neat too.

What make/model signal is that? The small U bolts make me think it's GRS.

Yes it's a GRS signal. The U-bolts are not original. I had to order some online. The originals were much thicker and were cut off with a torch.
