The engineer receives his orders from the hoop as he passes by the "Divide" Tower at Hicksville NY. The unit wears the revised paint scheme. Gone are the large 3-D like numbers and replaced with modest numbers and plain paint. Date is approximate. John Krause photo

Mike Woodruff General Again, this appears to be "Divide" tower at Hicksville, NY. Train is on the Port Jefferson branch; the "main line" to Ronkonkoma and Greenport diverges to the left. This trackage was all elevated during a grade crossing elimination project in the late 1960s. 4/2/2014 9:42:47 PM
Fred Stuckmann General Just too cool. 4/3/2014 12:16:34 PM
