When visitors enter the WPRM diesel shop, they pass by our operational Wig-Wag crossing signal. The “MAGNETIC FLAGMAN”, and other similar warning signals, were used extensively at grade crossing throughout the United States during the early-to-mid 20th Century. Our Wig-Wag was donated to the Feather River Rail Society by Dr. Cheryl Meeker in memory of Ken Meeker. Our wig-wag was made by Magnetic Signal Company of Los Angles and the base was made by Union Switch & Signal, Swissvale PA.
Read more about our Wig-Wag and how it got restored in the April/May/June 2019 Train Sheet Issue #181.
