Original 1920s GRS SA-1 Searchlight Signal. ONR type configured as dwarf ground box-elbowed top post mount (very rare), as still seen in pictures from (for now) Union Station, Toronto, Canada. This is one of the first SA-1 signals ever made! Has original milepost plate (one of a kind). Fully restored to ONR colors. RACO lock included.
This light was used at a siding at milepost 256C. The exact location on the tracks can be provided. This light was removed in the 1950s.

The original head was replaced with a newer (1980s) head. New lenses from General Signals Inc. A concrete/ wood base was added for that railway feel.
This item has an Arduino Uno computer board and relay system that can be programmed to make any color sequence including flashing lights. Manual mode also allows the user to manually change the colors. A control box has been added to the base, but may be extended.
Spare parts include an extra control head, a few new and used lenses. This light is designed for indoor and damp proof use, but can be easily modified to work fully outdoors.

This is perfect for someone who wants a turn-key livingroom conversation piece, or a live searchlight signal for their railroad!

Can deliver to many locations in Eastern Canada/ North-East US. Can ship as well. Please contact for more information.
