SAL Signal Aspects : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread

Does anyone know a source for the SAL (pre-merger) trackside signal aspects and signal system used in it's CTC territory?

I have an old SAL rulebook, circa 1962, and can answer most specific questions about CTC signal aspects. The SCL rulebook mentioned is probably good on the SAL lines as well, as the signals continue to be used on active lines to this day.

While I don't have an answer for you on the SAL signal question, I'm sure it can be found in an SAL rule book. I have an SCL book from 1972 and it's signal rules are almost exactly the same as those in the 1997 CSX book (The former SCL section, not the Chessie). If you get hold of an old Seaboard book, let us know!
