Yes, I have no doubt these old signals are getting hard to read. The one on the main at east Leyden (for eastbounds) looks really bad from 82nd Avenue. I frankly can't believe they haven't replaced those yet. Regardless, from a railfan standpoint it's a bummer to see them go. At the same time, it's good to see UP investing in the line.
I've heard rumors of a second main track being added from C&S to Leyden for years. To be honest, it's one of those things now of "I'll believe it when I see it". I don't really see what that kind of investment would do for UP at the moment. I've also heard rumors of Tolland and East Portal being connected as well as a second main being added from Tabernash to Winter Park. I'm not holding my breath that any of them will be happening anytime soon.

and they other location that you can find the signals are CP DS038.
