Why the heck are there 2 bases here??
The relay bungalows in the northwest quadrant.

These signals were installed in early 2009 replacing a pair of crossbucks with yield signs.  The wayside signals replaced another set of wayside signals installed in 2003 to the south!  What the heck BNSF??
 By May 2009, the extra base was removed.
In late 2009, the telegraph poles in between the main tracks were removed.
Sometime between 2013 and 2015, the gate striping was changed to the newer block style.

When I took the next the set of photos below in March 2015, BNSF was filling in the ditch between the 2 mains and were going to install sidings for trains waiting to get into the Logistics Park intermodal center to the north.  Presently, trains will often sit on the east track just south of the crossing to not block any other crossings waiting for permission to the enter the yard.  They often sit for long periods of time and tie up precious mainline space and with BNSF running very high priority UPS and intermodal traffic through here everyday, this creates quite an obstacle for them.

In December 2015, the project was completed, with the 2 main tracks now right next to each other, the old EB main converted to a siding, and 3 more siding tracks added.  A new relay bungalow was installed in the southeast quadrant and the old wayside signals have been removed, replaced with newer ones.  Once again, the old signals here lasted only 6 years!
As for the signals themselves, the crossbucks and track signs were replaced, and blue DOT signs were added.  This road is now called Seco Rd., but I'm gonna keep calling it Murphy Rd.
