This wigwag looks to be either ex-Northern Pacific, or Great Northern. Typical of
wigwags in the Northwestern sates, it is mounted on top of the mast without the
use of a cantilever. NP and GN were known for this. It is located at a small park
display of some random ex-GN railroad equipment. Brian Fritz has more:

"...attached photo of a wig wag signal that is at a small museum in Cashmere WA.
Cashmere is about 10 miles (I guess) west of Wenatchee. At one point it was
a minorly important location on the Great Northern. Anyhow, there's a small
"history" museum there, that has a bit of track and GN coach of some sort
and a GN wood caboose, and a couple of signal stands."
