TN Tower in Tampa-
A photo of the first TN tower. This building was constructed by the Tampa Northern Railroad, which later became part of SAL, to control the movement of trains across the existing ACL tracks. The wooden building was replaced in the 1950's with a modern brick tower. The tower still stands but with the introduction of Centralized Traffic Control has long since been abandoned.
