Rapids has something new, just north of town. Never had a signal like this before. CTC is coming to town.
I don't know when they will turn the heads into position and put it into service so northbound trains can use it.
This signal with 2 heads is placed just north of milepost 51. This is just beyond the yard limit
Maybe this will help trains go on their way to Junction City. Anything that will help trains leave town faster would satisfy a lot of motorists who wait at street crossings.
Junction City is 10 miles north of here, where the next signals should be for southbound trains.
I haven't been there, is there anything new south of the diamond?
Or south of Hiawatha?
