Superb photo with the "blinker" signal behind the the units. With the permission of the yardmaster, the 245 switch tender would push a button to give a wb the highball signal to come into the yard after the switches were thrown. They didn't want westbounds blocking Berry and Yosemite streets and the blinker signal was the non-verbal way to come on in.
