I need help with this one. It is a black box with a handle and ten red lights complete with a horn or sirene. It stands 22 inches tall by 12 inches wide and 8 inches thich. It is marked Seco, Gettysburg, PA.
Any help from you railroad buffs will be very welcome.

    Seco, manufacturing made automotive warning devices in the 1930s to the 1950s. Your device is a "Wigwag Electric Stop Light" for motor vehicle safety. They made several different models with and without audio warning alarms. They were used for automobiles but not Railroad use.
