 Post subject: Train Order Board
PostPosted: Sun Nov 22, 1998 6:02 pm 

Hello - Back before the "Great Interchange<br>Crash", I posted a request for help in loca-<br>ting a train order board for our new replica-<br>ted wood frame depot then under construction.<br>The depot is now about 99.5% complete and we<br>have been successful in securing a train<br>order board post to go in front of the depots<br>bay window. Unfortunately, the "semaphore"<br>parts of this board were mostly missing. The<br>board comes from the Monroe, Wisconsin depot<br>of the Illinois Central Railroad. From the<br>little research I have done (mostly from pix<br>in Jim Boyd's Book on the IC "Monday Morning<br>Rails", it appears that the IC used a unique<br>lower quadrant type order board for their<br>stations and towers. Is there anyone out<br>there who can help our museum (the Hoosier<br>Valley Railroad Museum in North Judson, IN)<br>in securing two "semaphores" of the CORRECT<br>TYPE for our depot. Also for your info, we<br>also received a donated set of train order<br>board desk mounted train order board levers<br>for the inside of the depot which we intend<br>to use with this order board to make it fully operational.<p>Any help anyone can furnish us will be very<br>much appreciated! Thanks!!<p>Hoosier Valley Railroad Museum<br>P. O. Box 75<br>North Judson, Indiana 46366<p>(or post a reply here in Interchange!)<br><br>
