The BNSF work crew arrives and is ready to
begin. The signal supervisor from Dodge City, Mr. Bill Blecha, starts
the dismantling of the semaphore by disconnecting two DC power relays at
the base of semaphore. This causes the semaphore arm to drop to
the 'Stop' position. After almost 70 years of service, the semaphore is
retired from duty.
