Signals Donated To Centennial Park

Winslow’s Centennial Park moved a step closer to completion when it was presented with several pieces of train memorabilia.

Mike Rusnak (l) of JR’s Kachina Wrecking donated two signals, a bridge and a changeover switch to the new park, located at the corner of Williams and Second Streets. The work to create Centennial Park began when Winslow artist Bill Dixon painted a mural depicting three engines.

Rusnak received all the signals from Flagstaff to Gallup as part of a renovation project. Rusnak sold 22 of the signals to the Arizona Railroad Museum in Williams.
