And our UK readers will say, “What’s a wig-wag?” Well it’s not related to a wigwam, or even to wiff-waff (better known as ping-pong or table tennis.
It’s s visual and audible signal for ungated railroad crossings.
The picture below is cropped from a 1992 Model Railroader, showing a working wig-wag in HO.
The reason for this post is that I came across this little video on YouTube. There are plenty more of wig-wag crossings, but I also liked the citrus packing house in this film.
Bit of a challenge to model in ‘N’ though…..
