A wigwag?

Leave it to Peanuthead to teach me something new

I was looking at caches in downtown Medford and saw this one


A Wigwag it seems is what they call those old fashion rail road crossing signs that flash and swing when a train comes. I remember one being in the Hugo area. It seems that only 44 of them are left in the country. The ones that exist are grandfathered in as they quit installing them in 1949. Once they can't fix it anymore this one will be gone as well. Just more proof that geocaching isn't always about the find.
