Antique Wig Wag Railroad Crossing Signal Orginal Working Museum Quality Lamp :
I removed this signal many years ago from its original crossing site. It is in original and good working condition. It operates off 12 volt DC and a car battery will work it good. It is an electro-magnet type and swings like a clock pendulum when voltage is applied. it only connects with 2 wires and I have the maintence manual pages necessary to understand for the new owner. The unit was sand blasted and painted. The target looks good because I found a box with a couple new old stock target shields to replace this one. There are lines on the operating box I believe to be casting marks since there are no cracks on the inside. I see a steel plate attached to one magnet stand inside the control box which probably reinforced the magnet stand since it seems to fit but who knows on a 100 year unit. I just want to describe this as well as possible since you are investing your money. It is a good operating unit. This comes with no warranty except I will operate the signal for you when you pick it up. It comes apart in 4 sections and will fit in the back of a mini van very nice when back seat is removed. After you see it operate, I will disassemble for you and load. You can see how easy it comes apart and goes back together. If you live 2000 miles away and must have it shipped it will take $200 to build a crate with correct packing and probably another $200 to ship by truck. I will work with you but i have not had this signal out of my sight and I hate to turn it over to a shipper. If you hook it up to 120 volts you will burn it up. That's why I make no warranties what-so-ever on the signal. What you see is what you get. I set the reserve very reasonable. Please do not ask to purchase the item and end the sale or ask my reserve price. have fun offerding and if you want one of these here's your chance. Payment is due in 72 hours after end of sale. If you don't pay I will turn in to and you will have to deal with their restrictions. If you have a problem or questions ask BEFORE offerding. I appreciate your interest. Don't worry about money they print it every day but they don't make these signals any more.
