This is Not a reproduction and the Warning Lights and Telephone have been restored to Working Condition. This Warning Signal Light Tower and Antique Telephone Assembly is very rare and features an Oak Hardwood Base.
The Signal Light Assembly is made of cast aluminum. This is a perfect addition for a "unique or unusual" Desk, Bar or Counter Top application. The wooden base measures 11 1/4 x 15 inches and the overall height is 19 inches.
Warning Light Tower with Telephone is very rare and distinctly unusual. The Railroad Warning Signal Lights have been wired with a 4 way switch to allow Red and Blue Lights to turn on "independently" or "both at the same time".In addition, each of the electrical sockets allows the light sockets (red and blue) to illuminate either in a "hi or low" position inside of the tower. The brass four way electrical switch is conveniently located on the right side, outside of the tower assembly. The back side of the Warning Light Tower is deeply "embossed" as follows: General Railway Signal Co. A very distinct "GRS" Railroad Logo is located below the manufactures name information and an identification Box Number Plate (# 1261) is attached above. The Warning Light Tower Assembly has a Black powder coated finish (baked on enamel) and is hand lettered in Gold. The General Railway Signal Tower Assembly has a 1930-40's Western Electric Model 211 Telephone attached to the left side. That has been "converted for use on today's telephone system". The telephone has an older style Western Electric "F-1" Handset, made of bakelite and includes a Cloth Covered Handset Cord.
This Railroad Telephone will work fine with "regular" telephone service without a converter. Be sure to ask about other Police, Fire, Yellow Cab Taxi and Railroad Call Box Telephone Restorations. T he pictures may show some reflections in the powder coated finish. This Railroad Telephone is in absolutely beautiful condition.
