Requiem for a CPL - CSX Baltimore
CPL bridge dismantled
On May 17, 2014, CSX crews dismantled the color position light (CPL) signal bridge, dwarfs, and masts at the Bailey's Wye interlocking in downtown Baltimore. Chapter members John and Stephen Sery made a video to document the moment and pay tribute to those long-standing sentinels of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad.
