Fourth of July 2002
The citys main residential thoroughfare has a lot of classic Crouse-Hinds
Art Deco and breadloaf signals. Some of these have been removed in recent
years because they were deemed redundant in a city that has been, sadly,
losing population (and traffic) since 1950.
Until around 1998, the control boxes were in their matching original
yellow paint; that year or so, they received a coat of brown paint. More
photos will be provided sometime in the future. On the whole, the vintage
signals are in great condition. One could easily make a movie set in 1949
America. Utica is a nice-looking city located in a beautiful
region of America.
