N&W High Voltage & Close Clearance Signs




Running beside N&W's right of way were poles carrying wires for communication and signal control. This thin, tin sign was about milepost 197.5 on the abandoned, old mainline west of Concord, Va. and warned of high voltage wires above. January 2011

At a freight house in Appomattox County on the abandoned old N&W mainline around Lynchburg, this sign was once used. It is baked enamel and warned railroad workers that the clearance between the structure and a freight car was not sufficient for a man to pass. March 2012
