Missouri, Kansas & Texas Granger, TX railroad depot and semaphore train order signal

The engineer on MKT Extra 227 North is picking up train orders at the Granger, TX depot on August 21, 1978. The semaphore signal is rather unique to this railfan that grew up along the SP in California. When this order board is cleared the signal blade points straight down. Right after I took this picture the wind started to blow, kicking up a lot of dust. It then started to rain and with all the dust in the air, it rained mud.
