This is the sight eastbound trains would see as they emerged from the Tennessee Pass tunnel at the summit. Well, okay...almost the sight they'd see. Assuming all the masts in the shot actually had their signal heads!

Is there still electricity to the system?  
Even if power is not ON, they would be paying for a meter in place.  
(Recently I discovered that since 2004 a town had paid over $800 just for the meter of a tornado siren which had not even been tested in all that time. Meter reads 0,000.0 Watts.  
The disconnect switch is pad-locked OFF. They have since stopped the billing on the meter.)

I can't help but wonder if that's not simple theft and vandalism.
