At one point it was a goal of mine to put a shot of every CSX Metropolitan Sub CPL on RP. I lost interest in that but here are some:

And then some Euro stuff with the big black surfaces to make the light stand out in daytime:

Beautiful stuff everyone. Since I have exactly zero signal shots in my collection, I better go out and get some!

I've a few myself, but not really anything shot to make the signal the focus of the shot (least not on RP), and certainly nothing rivaling some of these. Nice work, guys.

Shoot them while you can, they won't be on all of the mainlines forever.

Signals are always delightful subjects for shooting after the sun sets...
