An antique railway semaphore signal. One of the earliest forms of railway signals, semaphores relay information about the upcoming tracks to engineers. This two-position, upper quadrant signal features a cast iron base, a weathered painted wooden arm, and both red and blue glass diffusers. The arm is painted red with a single white stripe on one side, and yellow on the other, with significant weathering. This semaphore is most likely British in origin.
