You are bidding on a complete restored and repainted B&O Mast Color Position Light Signal. Signal was completely disassembled, all rusted and destroyed screws and bolts replaced with new, repainted, and rewired. Signal is completely operational, and ready for a good home. Signal originally came from the B&O between Garrett and Chicago and was retired during the redouble tracking in the late 90's in preparation for the Conrail takeover. Signal came from another collector originally.

All hood screws and lens rings have new brass screws and washers installed. This signal is as mint as the day it was placed in service.

All lenses have been replaced with brand new General Signals Inc. plastic lenses. This means the inner colored lenses, in addtion to the outer clear lenses. New lens gaskets have also been installed around the outer lenses.

Signal has new wiring installed but retains the original signal bulbs.

Winning bidder will need an appropriate power supply to power the signal.

I should be able to ship the item via UPS ground. If I do ship, I will ship the brackets and lens visors in a seperate box from the target of the signal. This will reduce weight and decrease the risk of damage to the visors. Shipping will be at actual cost to the winning bidder. Upon completion of the auction, please provide a shipping address so I can get the cost of shipping to you. This will save you money, as eBay's shipping calculator usually charges more than what is really needed.

I will can also deliver to Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, and Norhtern Kentucky for the price of my gas. Or, I am willing to meet a winning bidder at the Indiana Line on any of the interstates to facilitate a hand-off, again for the price of my gas to the meeting point and return to Indy. Finally, item can be picked up in Avon, IN (west side of Indianapolis) at the bidders convience..

Signal is large, but did fit inside the back of my 1997 Chevy Blazer without disassembly. Pickup truck would make loading easier.

I accept PayPal, Personal Checks (to clear), Money Order's, or I will accept cash (if picking up in person).
