PLEASE READ EVERYTHING CAREFULLY AS THERE IS ALOT OF INFORMATION NEEDED TO BE COVERED!

Up for sale here is a restored 1970-80 era railroad crossing signal. This signal has had hundreds of dollars put into it, especially including the original auction price. You may be saying, why so much on the price, but the reality is there, the lights alone are worth 1500, since they were only made from the 70's to the late 80's by General railway signal in Rochester, NY. These were known to break easily as they were fragile and cheaply made! They are made by a lexan type plastic, that is why the are called LEX-C lights. Don't let the the word fragile fool you as they are very durable and easy to work with without being overly carefull. An included item is the wooden relay cabinet wich holsd a 12v car battery (not included, but cheap to purchase, as I spent 20 dollars on mine at Walmart auto, and some stores provide free recharges if it goes dead) and a RACo relay from the 1970's, which was all not included in the original sale of the signal.
Some work done to the pole includes:
- Filling of 5 large holes with bondo, and strengthener
- repainting of the pole, bell, lights, and final
- renewed wiring throughout the pole and light holding manifold
- replaced ulbs in 3 lights
- polishing of the lights
- construction of a box that recieves the wires that run through the signal to connect to power, eqquipted with locking mechanisms, and easy access!
- the purchase of a flasher relay
- full restoration of the WRRS mechanical bell (fully operational)
Lots of Additional TLC
ALL COSTING MORE THE SALE PRICE

* only one problem!: the front right light occasionally has a malfunction with the bulb, so just tighten it or adjust it (you'll figure it out)!
You will need a battery that has more than 12 volts, as it does suck up more DC than you think!
