Train Order Signal

Bell Cranks

TOSignalHandles
 
Handles attached to wall with brass hook and #10 steel wire. The #10 wire is the same as used for the telegraph and signal lines along the right of way.

TOSignalPully
 
The bell cranks connect to the signal at top of post with the steel wire. Because the #10 wire is not very flexible, a chain was used around the pully. When reconditioned in 2010, 3/16" cable was used in place of the wire.
