Wigwag Master List

animation by Paul Allison

This is a running list of all active (excluding museum ) wigwags known to "Dan's Wigwag Site". Most locations are linked to the page on this site that contain further info and photos of that wigwag. If you know of any not listed here or have been recently retired, please email me . Any letters that I get that are not backed up with photographic proof go to the " Letters Page ". This way hopefully someone else gets a photo of it to submit here.

This list contains only wigwags that are still in service. There is a link below where you can view the older list that goes back to 1998, which contains links to wigwags that were retired since this site was started.
Total active (US) wigwags known to this site...22
