Interlocking tower foundation

Interlocking towers were once used at a busy location of a main railroad line to centralize signals. As technology improved, they were no longer needed and signals were controlled from elsewhere. Shown is part of the foundation for an interlocking tower at Milford Junction, north of Milford in Kosciusko County, for the old B & O Railroad (now CSX). It was near the junction with the Big Four (now Norfolk Southern) Railroad. And the Winona Interurban Railway also came through nearby, creating a busy railroad traffic area.

About historynut11

My name is Tim Ashley and I am a newspaper editor/reporter/photographer in Milford, Indiana, and live in nearby Goshen, Indiana. A deeply held and sincere passion of mine is history and learning from the past. I enjoy a wide variety of history topics, but particularly local history, noted American highways (Lincoln Highway and Route 66), railroad history and the Civil War. I believe we can learn much from the past and that past shapes who we are today. I also enjoy visiting museums and historical sites, as well as taking photos of remnants from the past still standing.
