|First available from 1938 until 1942, the 1045 operating watchman returned to the catalog in 1946, until 1950. It had a huge, oversize blue plastic man who held up a white signal flag as the train passed. Beside him was a signpost with a diamond-shaped nickel or brass sign affixed to it reading "Look out for the Locomotive" and "Railroad Crossing." The post was normally painted an aluminum color except during 1941 and 1942, when the aluminum pigment wasn't available because of the war. It is very tough to find this piece complete - the arm holding the flag that raises up is commonly missing.
