Standing Guard

A New York Central-era signal mast stands guard at dusk the east end of CP-11, governing the movements of CSX Boston Line trains and MBCR commuters through the interlocking's crossovers 24 hours a day, seven days a week. While Conrail replaced the majority of the B&A's NYC-style signaling to modern tri-color Type G signals, CP-11 in Weston, MA is one of four interlockings between Boston and Selkirk, NY that are still controlled by vintage NYC-style searchlight signals. But for now, the lights in Weston remain dark, and the rails silent, waiting for the next train to bring life to the railroad again.
