Central Railroad of New Jersey B60 Machine:
This is a Union switch and Signal style B60 control cabinet. It was built in 1953 for the Central Railroad
of New Jersey to control switches and signals at Middlesex Interlocking in Middlesex, New Jersey.
This was a temporary installation and was used to re-route traffic while railroad elevation construction
was underway through South Plainfield. It was direct wire control and was located in a place called
"LINCOLN" tower which was an old railroad coach.
The other end of the elevation project was at Clinton Avenue, located in "MACK" tower.
Clinton Avenue was also saved, restored and operates here.
All train movements, route check and locking, switch and signal positions, etc, are controlled using a
Multitrax Microcontroller. I/O is done with boards designed by me that contain various pull-up resistors
for inputs and 64 latched open-collector outputs for driving lamps and the bell.
