T2 signal status updated and confirmed as of 8/4/2001

Currently, 90 US&S Co. Style T2 upper quadrant (top-of-mast mechanism) semaphores remain in service in New Mexico.

I am greatly indebted to Brad Hellman and others for this complete Santa Fe signaling information. Much of this has also been confirmed by personal observations (Semaphores.com).

UPDATE February 2000: All semaphores between Las Vegas and Watrous have been removed from service as of 2/1/00.
