MONON Grade Crossing Signal

Indiana's Monon Railroad was creative with their signals, most notably with their use of grade crossing lamps as train order signals. More obscure was their unique grade crossing signals built using standard traffic light components, which remained lighted green until a train approached. While the final signals were removed from service in 2002, there seems to be few pictures of them in service.

I had seen one picture (HERE) some time ago, but it wasn't until I was browsing the web recently that I came across the photo seen to the left. (My apologies, I couldn't find a credit.) Once I saw this, I knew I had to build one.
