||First we catch the 501 Job (Eugene-Roseburg Hauler, still with all-CORP
power) and repair a grade crossing gate. We get a look inside one
of the equipment bungalows, and then watch the 508 Job (Roseburg Eugene
Hauler) pass as Rick inspects his repair work.
||After the 508 splits a set of blades, Rick opens the cases for a
close-up of the innards that make these semaphores work. Next we
take off hi railing up the line as Rick makes his monthly inspections including
a rare set of double-doubles in Oakland.
||Continuing north, we look at some Tri-color signals that are replacing
the semaphores and check out some blades on Rice Hill. On the way
back, Rick shows off the state of the art Electrocode signal controls and
a trackside hotbox/dragging equipment detector.
||Finishing our tour, Rick tests some new grade crossing signals near
Roseburg before heading back to his "hideaway". On another day, we
find some interesting signals farther south including a Wig-Wag right
next to the Rogue River and an H-2 in Medford.
