Long time sentinels laid to rest. NS 64R, with the Central Railroad of New Jersey heritage unit leading, passes MP258.8. Where the last of the PRR west slope block signals still lay. Just one day after the plug was pulled. Ending many decades of faithful service. This was done in favor of PTC cab signals. It's hard to imagine how many trains have passed these lights. From the steam era to what we see today.
