Photos from March 2008.  At the time, this crossing had 12"x20" Safetran incandescent lights and 4" RECO incandescent lights.  The Safetran gate mechanisms replaced a pair of WRRS gate mechanisms 2 years or less before then.

In late 2008, the relay bungalow seen in Picture 7 was replaced.  It was removed in April 2009.
In mid 2011, the whole crossing received an LED upgrade.
