As, at a minimum, a railway buff & historian these abused and neglected railway semaphores in Alton, New Hampshire — my hometown, where I pay a fair chunk in property taxes — aggrieves and aggravates me.
Four years ago, when they were as peeled as this I finally managed to get the Town to paint them — though I never realized that they would paint them ALL black!
Now they are peeling again — badly.
These semaphores are SUPPOSEDLY ‘protected’ by the State because of their historic significance. But Alton does not seem to care. If they give me permission I will clamber up there and paint them on my OWN dime. I have been fighting this battle for 4 years — and I am so fed up. IF you could please help me. PLEASE call (603) 875-0109 and plead with them.
