You will find this wigwag guarding the main entrance to the Colorado Railroad Museum in Golden, Colorado. It originally came from the CB&Q Lyons branch line on US 287 between Broomfield and Longmont, Colorado. This is a Western Railroad Supply Autoflag with GRS signs and a Union Switch and Signal bell. It has been modified to also provide train signal indications as to whether the signal has been activated or not.  They do not have track circuitry at this time, and the signal is manually activated using a light switch.

The museum operates a 1881 narrow gauge D&RGW 2-8-0 locomotive No. 346 five weekends per year on a half-mile oval of track on the museum property. We
 also run one or more of our "Galloping Geese" on selected weekends.

Check out their website for more info.
