July '07 RailModel Journal has a short article on Chuck Liford's Indy
Line layout.

and the signal system was done by the master, Mike Burgett

Mike writes: "I have always had an interest in railroading and in railway signal systems since I was about eight years old. I always enjoyed wiring my Lionel layout and in later years my HO scale layout. It was this interest that led me to learn as much about railway signal systems as I could. Today I put this information to good uses in my job as a Signal Maintainer for the Canadian National Railway in Pontiac, Michigan.

Model railroading is still my hobby. I have recently completed the Centralized Traffic Control (CTC) system on my friend Chuck Liford's layout, who models Conrail's Indianapolis Line from Berea Ohio to Indianapolis, Indiana circa 1998.

While I cannot provide complete details here due to space I ask that you PLEASE call me before bidding. chuck , This is just to big a layout to describe here.

Pick up would be in Troy Michigan, north of detroit.

I thank you for your time,
