There are now no wigwags left in New Mexico.

Another view looking east from street, quite timeless actually. This wigwag happens to be a Minneapolis buit signal. The only noticeable difference is that it says "Minneapolis Minn"  instead of "Los Angeles Cal" on the front of the motor box. These were built later.

New Mexico's second wigwag is located on the boarder of the San Felipe Indian Reservation and the Santo
Domingo Pueblo Grant.It is equi-distant between the San Felipe Pueblo and Santo Domingo Pueblo on
the only road that directly connects these 2 towns. (in the grand scheme of
things it's roughly equi-distant between Albuquerque and Santa Fe).
This is another typical Santa Fe upper quadrant model.

Another image by Evan Werkema taken in 1986.
This one has had a history of beat up banners.
Notice the 2 arms that extend from the front. Presumably
"stops" for the banner.
