Photos from January 2011 by Santafebuff.

Between 2011 and 2015, one of the WCH LEDs on the southern signal was replaced with a UP LED for some reason
The only other changes were the resurfacing of the crossing from wood to concrete in 2012 for the 110 mph track upgrade, and the replacing of the gate holders.

These signals replaced a pair of gateless signals in mid to late 2009 that had 12"x20" incandescents and a Safetran Mechanical bell.  Click here to see a video of the old signals.

Update:  As of July 3, 2016, the crossing was upgraded to quad gates as part of the double tracking of this portion of the line.  A good chunk of the old signals were reused, including the lights, gate mechanisms, bases, crossbuck, and one of the WCH E Bells.  The lone UP LED that was on the southern signal is now on the northern signal.
