  1. Sugar Bowl Xing '95

    Sugar Bowl Xing '95

    The view of Sugar Bowl x-ing in 1995. SP signal supervisors advised me at the time that these wig wags were high priority to be upgraded to modern flashers. Both were retired soon afterwards, and found their way to the front yards of SP signal maintainers' private residences.
  2. Passing Raggedy

    Passing Raggedy

    SP 8363 West is drifting downhill into East Gold Run. SP MoW crews always refered to this xing as Raggedy A$$, but only refered to the first part when using the PBX channel. The wig wag would come out in 1990.
