The Scoop:

This page is for the signals of a CSX siding going thru Lee FL.  Period.

There are a few neat things about the signals for this siding:

The Doll Posts for one, they are B&O style with no lamp to illuminate the "signal".  See note below, tho.

Another is the dual masts used at location 2, instead of employing a bracket post.

Lastly, the dwarf signal, at least at the west end, is two aspect with an "S" in the third bottom location,

The next set of signals going west is adjacent to SE Farm Rd and Macedonia Church Rd, and is ~2.4 miles from signal location 1.

Next signals going east appear to be about 3 miles from location 4.

If anyone ever wants to contribute pictures for one of my pages, this is a good tutorial on "how to" and what I'm looking for!!!

A high signal for the mainline, a dwarf signal for the remains of the siding in advance of the signal - not much of it left, but nevertheless, it qualifies for a doll post to indicate to the engineer that there is a track between the track the signal governs and the signal.

I can't be quite sure, but in the dwarf, it looks like the bottom lens has an "S" on it, instead of being a colored lens.  The signal can give display red and green.

If we look at the support arm for the doll posts, at both locations, we can see evidence that the signal at one WAS illuminated, you can see the conduit and support straps that held it in place.

I love trains, and I love signals.  I am not an expert.  My webpages reflect what I find on the topic of the page.  This is something I have fun with while trying to help others.

Please Note:  Since the main focus of my two websites is railroad signals, the railfan guides are oriented towards the signal fan being able to locate them.  For those of you into the modeling aspect of our hobby, my indexa page has a list of almost everything railroad oriented I can think of to provide you with at least a few pictures to help you detail your pike.

If this is a railfan page, every effort has been made to make sure that the information contained on this map and in this railfan guide is correct.  Once in a while, an error may creep in :-)

My philosophy: Pictures and maps are worth a thousand words, especially for railfanning.  Text descriptions only get you so far, especially if you get lost or disoriented.  Take along good maps.... a GPS is OK to get somewhere, but maps are still better if you get lost!  I belong to AAA, which allows you to get local maps for free when you visit the local branches.  ADC puts out a nice series of county maps for the Washington DC area, but their state maps do not have the railroads on them.  If you can find em, I like the National Geographic map book of the U.S..... good, clear, and concise graphics, and they do a really good job of showing you where tourist type attractions are, although they too lack the railroads.  Other notes about specific areas will show up on that page if known.

Aerial shots were taken from either Google or Bing Maps as noted.  Screen captures are made with Snagit, a Techsmith product... a great tool if you have never used it! 

By the way, floobydust is a term I picked up 30-40 years ago from a National Semiconductor data book, and means miscellaneous and/or other stuff.

Pictures and additional information is always needed if anyone feels inclined to take 'em, send 'em, and share 'em, or if you have something to add or correct.... credit is always given!  Please be NICE!!!  Contact info is here
