High St offramp/I-880, Oakland CA.

This signal was removed sometime in early 2001.

One of two signals remain at this industrial spur in Oakland, Ca. The other signal at this crossing was removed sometime during the last 10 years and replaced with a standard highway flasher.

This set of signals can be found in downtown Tacoma on South D Street (west of the Tacoma Dome). They are located on a former Milwaukee Road line. Both signals have had their stop signs removed, as well as overhead lamps. Both still have their original crossbucks.
