A word of advice to anyone who wants to railfan here: DON'T. The ACIPCO Security will kick you out if you do try to railfan here.

 

The current FRA Inventory Report says this crossing gets only 5 weekly trains. However, previous reports say it gets 43 daily trains (all switching), which honestly seems much more acurate from my observations.
