This would have to be the king of all wigwags! What you are looking at is a
double Western Railroad Supply Co. wigwag with a US&S "teardrop" bell.
It is located somewhere in the town of Roseburg, IN. (Exact location unknown)
The rail line that it is on is the Central Railroad of Indianapolis, formerly NKP.
Update - 10/17/05:
Looks like this wigwag is being retired. Mark Vogel sends
us this photo
of the signal being dismantled:

Sullivan, Indiana is 25 miles south of Terre Haute along
Two wigwags have been located there by Ralph Bell. Both are on
the Indiana Railroad, former Illinois Central line.
|This signal is located on Court St. This is a Western Railroad Supply wigwag, with original style cantilever. It looks like the bell has been replaced in recent years.|
|A block away you'll find this one on Main St. Basically the same type of signal as found on Court St., with the exception of a longer cantilever.|
