Photos from March 2008.  Since then, the only changes were the removal of the telegraph poles in 2011 and the addition of blue DOT signs in 2014.

In 2017, a new logistics center in next to this crossing started being built and will be served by this line.  As such, UP is upgrading this dormant track with new ties and other various track improvements, and also they've upgraded all of the crossings between Braceville and the new facility, including this one.  New gateless signals were installed as well as a new bungalow.

Also, somehow I completely forgot take pictures of one of the signals.  I must've been in a hurry, but I swore I had pictures of it.  I went back in February to get pictures of the other signal, but here's what I got from November first.

In April 2019, we see the NEG E Bell on the eastern signal was replaced by a WCH E Bell.  Not sure why it got replaced so soon.  Also I included more pictures on the track layout update.  There is a derailer and a switch just north of this crossing.  Starting in August, trains began running 3 times a week to the logistics center.
