While surfing the net to find out links into our site I came across this site that had some info on our wig wag crossing signal. Visit his site he has some interesting stuff.
We are witnessing a former PE wigwag still performing a useful function for it's new owners, the Southern California Live Steamers in Torrance Ca.  Paul Good of Culver City Ca. informed me that this wigwag came from the PE's old Venice Short Line crossing at Robertson Blvd. Paul saved it from destruction and later donated it to the live steam group. Note the BNSF harbor branch line local in the background. I almost had two locomotives, steam and diesel, with one wigwag!
Thanks Steve for the interesting info.

I used to be a rocket scientist, now I am just a space cadet.
You only need three tools in life - WD-40, Duct Tape, and a Hammer. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape. If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.
