What company manufactured the ACL's Semaphores & Train Order Signals

greenspun.com : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread

Does anyone know which company (General Railway Signal or Union Switch & Signal) manufactured the semaphore signals used on the ACL's mainline up to the late 40's?

In addition, did the US&S Co. manufacture the ACL's train order signals? I'm sure the GRS manufactured the SAL, C&WC, and FEC train order signals which are visibly different from the ACL's. Thanks in advance for any information.

Good question! Since ACL utilized the GRS Intermittent Inductive Train Stop, it would be a good guess that the associated signals would also be GRS. US&S was a strong advocate of cab signal systems such as were found on the RF&P. Can't help on the TO signals. Perhaps some of the ex ACL signal guys would remember?
