Since Faller? and John Redden resurrected this thread, I thought I'd take the opportunity to show an exterior shot of Grasselli from this past December. The photo shows a roofing contractors work on putting a new roof on the tower, a job that was completed that month. Also note that the tower now wears a new coat of oil based paint, a job that was done this past fall.

What are these timers called? "ring-Down" I think was a name told to me once by a former PRR operator.


I'd imagine the names used are somewhat geographically based, like shifter or drill or switcher service. In my old stomping grounds they were "run down"
