It's the end of the line for this D&H signal tower in the City of Cohoes at M.P. 8.1/8.2. Being one of the last few remaining, it's replacement is being assembled just Northbound passed the Main St. Crossing. Since I was a kid, for almost 16 years this tower was one of my best tools in knowing when a train was coming on the Colonie Main, often 3 hours later a train either CP 450 or 938/939 would make the appearance. It's going to be hard seeing this signal go.
An ongoing/growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome, but seldom seen beauty of railroads because most of us don't go out after sundown or before sunrise. From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (And I continue to find new "Lights In The Night"!)
