This crossing is located on the UP Joliet Sub.
Overview of 2 gated signals protecting a field crossing facing east.
Between 2010 and 2015, the grade was
resurfaced and blue DOT signs were added. This is one of the few
crossings that retained its original gate savers beyond 2012.

The eastern signal.
The western signal. Somehow I completely forgot the bungalow, grade, and track view pictures. Private Crossing is to the north and Stonewall Rd. in Dwight is to the south.
These signals replaced a pair of crossbucks in the early 2000s.
The gates originally had 4" WCH incandecents, but were replaced with Aurora LEDs around 2009.
In November 2016, I noticed a new bungalow pop up behind the current one.
from November 2016. The grade was resurfaced again. I also
included a view looking into the field this crossing protects.
By April 2017, new signals were
installed and the old relay bungalow was removed. The new signals
have longer gates that almost completely block the "road". This was done to avoid putting in quad gates here.
