Thomas A. Edison Papers, School of Arts and Sciences, Rutgers University


New York, Sept 12th, 1901
Mr. Gilmore:-
During the conversation, I had with Mr. Sperry yesterday, he informed me; that the Sothern Railway, were working specifications for a signal insulation and what Mr. Daves formerly of the Central Railroad of New Jersey had charge of the work. It is expected that the specifications will be ready in about a month. Do you think it would be a good idea to write our friend Darlton, in reference to the matter.
I also met Mr. Adams who informed me that the Signal Engineer of the Pittsburg Division of the B & O R R called on him a short time ago to talk over Signal matters with him. He says that the B & O are again talking about equipping the Pittsburg Division, which is a hundred and fifty miles long, with Signal. On account of the interest the Pennsylvania Company have in the B & O, it is presumed that the Union Switch and Signal Company will do this work. During the last talk I had with our B & O friend, I was informed that the Edison Company would furnish the battery for all the B & O signals. You understand this.
I tried to look up our friend on the Station Island Road but found that he was away.
W.S. Logue
