In 2012, the gate holders were replaced, and the crossing was resurfaced when the track was upgraded to 110 mph standards.
By 2013, the southern main signal received both a Harmon Fading LED and a WCH 2nd Gen LED, replacing the original WCH 1st Gen LEDs in the same frames.

This massive setup replaced a pair of crossbucks in the early 2000s.  Originally, the gates had 4" WCH incandescents, but were replaced wtih Aurora LEDs around 2009.

By late 2017, the WCH E Bells on both of the northern signals were replaced by NEG E Bells.  Also the one Harmon Fading LED and 2nd Gen WCH LED on the southern main signal were replaced with 1st Gen WCH LEDs.  Not sure why they decided to reuse 1st Gens here, but now it looks completely uniform once again.
