The East End of North Branch had a signal bridge similar to the ones on the Lurgan Sub and Connellsville Sub. This signal bridge was the only signal bridge on the West Sub. Atop the bridge were signals 158.9A, 158.9B, and 158.9C. A dwarf signal and a telephone booth were here at the signal bridge that was located just next to the B159 milepost. The North Branch Storage Track, had a length of 5,499 ft. or 126, 40ft. car length. The signal bridge here at the East end was the eastern end of a short stretch of CTC that ran 4 miles west to Maryland Jct. and MY Tower. This stretch of CTC was controlled by the operator at "MY". The railroad east of the signal bridge remained to be controlled by train-orders with block signals all the way to Hagerstown. 90% of the WM right-of-way here was removed when Md Rt.51 was widened in the 1980's, exact year unknown.
