Well, perhaps a crash course in astrology would help to make some semblence of sense as to why "the Moon is in the 7th House", in respect to "clear" and "restrictive" aspects?<G>

Here are a couple shots of the position-light signals on the former Pennsy Buffalo Line just a bit north of Arcade in the Holland, NY area.

Here is the second shot, which is closer to Holland. This is on the "Protection Rd" overpass. Both shots are looking geographically North.

Back in my day, PRR PL's were plentiful in and around the Journal Square (Jersey City) area; the PRR, until 1961, operated suburban trains out of the waterfront Exchange Place station, and these, like the freights, passed through the H&M/PATH station area.
 
The H&M/PRR "Joint Service" trains, between Manhattan and Newark, also obeyed these signals.
 
Here we see a classic train of 1958 "K" Class-cars east of JSQ in 1961; note the PL's.
 
Yep, those were indeed the days.....

Chico seemed to operate just fine (including running at three figure speeds across Kansas) with nothing but three color searchlight signals and (some areas) semaphores. i see no need for better than that. Heck - the Rick Island and Burlington ran the joint line from Dallas to Houston dark, on 90 pound jointed rail at up to 90 to keep the 265 miles in 265 minute schedule...

Position light to indicate what?, is a indicate face? Incoming or shunting signal
