wigwag of the month 12/99  

December 1999

Point Richmond, CA

The two wigwags at Point Richmond, CA (BNSF) may be the last set of double upper-quadrant wigwags in existence. These are both center of street installations, with nicely maintained flower boxes. I recently heard that BNSF intends to replace these with crossing gates. The city of Richmond is apparently not convinced that they need to spend $200,000.00 on gates. This is not a high speed train crossing, and crossing gates would impact the appearance of historic Point Richmond. For more photos of these wigwags, click here.
