As with Dubuque East, the railroads seem to be reluctant to use the term tower for a building that doesn't tower above the line, and the New York Central chose to call this a Signal Station. One of several controlling different parts of New York's Grand Central station, Signal Station F was housed inside the main building of the station.

It contained two GRS Model 2 power interlocking machines working the signalling on the terminal loop. That on the left worked the High level lines entering at signal Station A and leaving at Signal Station C. The other frame, at right angles to it, controlled the Low Level lines which entered and left the station at Signal Station B.
