Camron Settlemier sends in this photo taken by a friend
that was on a recent
trip to Wisconsin. The wig-wags are located just a few blocks east of Hwy.
12 near the Baraboo River, and near a boarded up depot. According to
mapquest, this is an ex-CNW line.

In a state dominated by WRRS wigwags, this was quite a
surprise to see...
a double set of Magnetic Signal Company wigwags. Dave gives us more info on this location:
"I have attached 2 photos of wig-wag's that you do not
have listed on your Wisconsin register.
There is also another set of them, but as yet I haven't found the crossing that they guard.
The reason that I finally found this set is I was chasing a train & happened to get lucky.
This set guards the WC now CN Minneapolis Sub at MP 324.1 The guard what is called Road #3
and the name of the town is Eidsvold, if you want to call it a town anyway.
Its listed on the Wisconsin Gazetteer page 62 A 1.5 I was looking for a road that would
take me back to a great bridge shot when I found the wig-wag's."
