Pictures from May 2008.  Not much was different at this time, other than the gate striping was a little different and the gate lights were 4" WCH incandescent.  To see video of the train in Pictures 13-16, click here.

Between 2008 and 2010, the incandescent gate lights were replaced with Aurora LED gate lights.
In 2012, the grade was resurfaced during a track upgrade.
In 2012 or 2013, the gate holders on all 4 signals were replaced.  UP did this with most of the crossings on this line for some reason.
