This spring I'm going to purchase a bunch of Reading signs and large signal lamps
from a very smart savage dealer who didn't melt them down.
If we are too busy then, we'll put them on Ebay & Yahoo next winter 2001 !

Flangers were RR snowplows: blades between the trucks could be lowered to railhead level, and a lower section between the inner rail flangeways cleared snow below the railhead.  the blade had to be raised over switches, grade crossings, etc. The PRR had trackside markers for the operators.

I found a foundry in Pennsylvania that made a number of cast iron signs for different railroads, this one was for the Pennsylvania Railroad.                                                
These are the last of the Originals I have.
NOTE my first couple of PRR signs, I'm selling on E-bay, where never shipped to the PRR! I got these from a cawl-space in a foundry about 29 years ago. Had over 200 of them at that time.
