    Nice pictures Buddy. In the picture captioned "CRIC02 enters homerails at OS Yocum," I notice the signal is yellow. I thought that all the old Rock Island signals were beyond repair and because of that the IAIS was solely track warrant operation. Am I wrong here? Thanks for sharing, great pictures as always.

    That actually is a radio-controlled switch. They will dial up the number and it will get thrown on the spot. The yellow light indicates that the switch is reversed for their movement. For the east/westbound trains they also use this too by dialing up a certain number and it will turn green to indicate that the track is lined for main to main.
