ISignal semaphore located at Laws.  The signal is in its original location to warn motorists on Silver Canyon Road (former US Highway 6) to watch out for departing northbound trains prior to World War 2.  After that time, Southern Pacific removed rails north from Laws, shortening the route between here and Keeler, some 70 miles south.  July 1998.
