WestConn Chapter member and former Tower Operator Steve McEvoy authored a one of a kind book on interlocking towers called “The Classic Railway Signal Tower”.  Steve tells the fascinating story of interlocking towers and the men and women who staffed them by focusing on New Haven Railroad Signal Station 44 including its transformation into the SoNo Switch Tower Museum.


In the book's foreword, William Withuhn, a  former transportation history curator at the Smithsonian Institution writes "Welcome to the best book, bar none, ever written about railroad signal towers and their skillful staffs."


The 166-page soft cover book contains many color photos and diagrams.


Book retails for $49.95, but is available through the SoNo Switch Tower Museum for the special price of $37!  Includes free shipping in the USA.
