VGN Ry Locomotive Light and N&W Ry Whistle Post
Visitors are welcomed by a marker light from Virginian Railway locomotive number 468, a class MC. The family monogram "W" is actually a cast iron whistle post form the N&W Ry. Railroads placed whistle posts in advance of road and street crossings so that engineers would blow their engine's whistle, alerting traffic of the train's approach.
