As far as I know there has always been a diamond there . Actually the main-line runs ( FLINT SUB ) east and west over the diamond and if your coming from the south  ( HOLLY SUB ) going north it takes you right into Durand yard . To get in and out of the yard you still need a signal just like getting across the diamond .

 
OK. I must be thinking of someplace else. If I remember I'll let you know. Thanks for the info though!

That is an awesome photo , a clear intermediate signal is always a good signal to see   , can you make that signal drop with your photo magic ?

Among my favorites are:
1. Signal bridges either with lights or with semaphores.
I remember the signals from the E-L days and Hoboken Terminal. There was an NYS&W semaphore in my hometown that used to intrigue me, too.
2. The Erie triangular light signals.
3. The signal equipment on the PATH and NYC subways.

No not really. The show takes place further south more towards central/northern NJ in Union County NJ I think.  I don't watch the show too often, it's kind of far fetched and an insult to New Jersey. People in NJ really don't talk like that, they all have those terrible New York accents in the show for some reason    However, the state loves the show and there is even a tourbus that goes around to popular landmarks featured in the show. I always thought the show made NJ look like a trash can, and made the people look bad.  Truth is, NJ  is a mostly down to earth blue collar hard working state. I think the Sopranos belong someplace else, not New Jersey. But I wouldn't say that out loud, not down here!!!
 
Sorry for such a long anwer!!!

Your welcome.
 
BTW, you sent me an instant message. I'm not sure, but I think you sent it to the wrong username. You might want to check. Anyway, Bien Suerte en Mexico! I think that means good luck

Have you ever heard of the NBC show "ED"? Well, it's supposed to take place in Stuckeyville, Ohio. Truth is, Stuckeyville, Ohio doesn't exist. The show was filmed around my area and they even closed down one of the local bowling alleys, it was bought out by NBC as a set for the show. The funniest part was, in the show, the local model railroad shop is the same one I but all my model railroad stuff at.
