Centerville Semaphores

The restored train order signal at the Centerville Depot in Fremont, California is the only surviving semaphore signal in its historically accurate location along a former Southern Pacific mainline.  Mike Armstrong photo.

Train order signals were once used to notify train crews if they needed to pick up written orders at stations along the line.  Movable blades and colored lights were used.  On the Southern Pacific, a green light with the blade pointed down meant proceed.  A red light with the blade sticking out to the side meant that the crew needed to pick up orders.  The historic Centerville Depot has been restored and is still a station stop for Amtrak’s Capitol Corridor trains.

Centerville Semaphores shows the blades and lights of the train order signal set against a background of blue sky and pink blossoms.

About our prints…

Our archival, art quality images like Centerville Semaphores are reproduced on acid-free paper with ink that is rated to be fade resistant for up to 200 years.

Each Centerville Semaphores print comes mounted in a 16″ x 20″ archival mat with backing board.  All TSG prints are matted to standard frame sizes for ease of framing.

We cut our own mats.  The mat colors may vary depending on what we have in stock but we always pick something that compliments the artwork.  If you place an order and would like a specific mat color, send us a note and we will try to accommodate you.  For Centerville Semaphores we usually use a double mat, often in shades of blue, brown and/or gray.  Sometimes we use the same color for both the inner and outer mats.  This creates a different but equally appealing look.  The print itself is about 11″ x 14″, which leaves an approximate 2.5″ border on the sides and 3″ on the top and bottom.

Prints are protected by a clear plastic archival bag that guards against moisture and minor scratches.  We recommend leaving the print inside the bag until it is transferred to a frame.
