Not for long - Guilford has filed to abandon the signal system. Surprised it took this long.

Another great photo Bruce! Thank you for the excellent descriptions too. I have printed several of your photos and put them in my railfan notebook. I bring them with me when I am out railfanning the B&M. Thank you!
