I made 4 or 5 bridges that were on the Chicago Canal. Weather they are good or not is up to you, lol.

The Smart Signals are only for TS2009 and up, I believe. You need the old versions of those signals that work as far back as TRS2004, but they appear to have been replaced by the Smart Signals. Old versions of the GRS searchlights and SOU-style Safetran colorlights should be on the DLS.

"Chicago style signals"? :hehe: Chicago is the railroad hub of the universe, every major railroad in America had a terminal there, so signals range from searchlights to 3 color light to Pennsy style to the oddballs the CTA has used over the years with everything in between. I would suggest actually going to Chicago (Western Springs is a suburb, ain't even in Cook County) and looking around. Take the Metra downtown, ride other Metra lines and the L and subway lines, bring a camera. I don't live in Chicago anymore but if you think you'll need a bodyguard I can hook you up with a friend for $200 per day.

"Chicago-style" signals, huh? Pehaps a photo of one or tell us what railway(s) they appear on would help.

Oh really, they are S"1T are they, why don't you try and make your own that suit you then. The one's I have are not faulty and are definitely not S"it as you so readily pronounce on a public forum. The one's I have are perfect in every way and very much appreciated for all the hard work that went into making them in the first place.
:eek:

Yeah.. those are the ones at Racine if I'm not mistaken. Shooting the Pennsy E8s beneath those would've been nice when they were in town for NTD. Not really many of those left unless you're over on the NS Chicago Line which is primarily on the southeast side of town, which isn't really the best parts of Chicago anyway.
