Crouse-Hinds Type M Features

The Type M signal appeared in 1959. It was lighter in weight than its predecessor, the DT, and most Type Ms had aluminum reflectors. The shape of the doors gave it a stockier appearance. The visors were interchangeable with the earlier Type D and DT signals that had removable visors.
