Rock Island Railroad interlocking tower at Saginaw, Texas

Do not adjust your monitor, the Saginaw Tower really did lean that way. Train 23 (Extra 379 South) is crossing the Santa Fe mainline at Saginaw Tower late in the afternoon on February 26, 1974. Since the Rock Island Railroad was the last railroad to arrive, it had the responsibility for building the interlocking tower. Tower 29 was built around 1903. It was torn down in 1985. CRI&P installed 7 US&S semaphore signals between Saginaw and North Fort Worth in 1941. It installed 45 US&S color light signals between Chico and Saginaw in 1946. In 1947 and 1948 it installed 172 US&S color light signals between Chico and El Reno, OK 159 miles. Disk 87
