Pictures from March 17, 2007.  We see a complex setup here.  Washington St. has 2 bell-less gated signals and intersects with Aurora St. right in the crossing.  There's also a driveway that intersects in the crossing and this has a lone gate with no lights, an ASC E Bell, and a Safetran S-85 gate mechanism.  Picture 4 is from Wood St.

Pictures from March 24, 2007.  We see closer looks at the gated signals for Washington and Aurora St.  All signals have Electro-Tech's LEDs with the western signal having 12"x20" WCH frames, the eastern with 12"x20" Harmon frames, and the Aurora St. signal having 12"x24" Safetran frames.  The WCH frames had WCH Clear LEDs originally, the Harmons most likely had Harmon Dotted LEDs, and the Safetrans were most likely incandescent.

Pictures from May 5, 2007.  We see more action shots, plus a look at the pedestrian gate on the northeast side of Washington St.  This is the only one at this crossing for some reason, and it has a Safetran S-85 gate mechanism.  We also see that some of the boxes on the relay case are from Griswold!

Pictures from September 29, 2007.  We see preparation work for upcoming crossing repairs going on, plus an EJ&E maintainer working on the lights on Washington St. #2.

Some more pictures of the driveway signal with the ASC E Bell from October 7, 2007.  People living here had to drive on the grass to Wood St. while the crossing was under construction.  There has since been another road paved from Wood St. to this driveway, so this is now mainly a secondary entrance.

Pictures from October 27, 2007.  Work was just about finished here with UP and EJ&E doing some final touches.  A UP local with old GP15-1s came by as well.

Pictures from October 28, 2007.   One last look at the crossing for 12 years, at least for this site.  The audio below was taken on August 2, 2007.




In 2009, the Safetran S-85s on the driveway signal and pedestrian gate were placed by normal Safetran gate mechanisms.  They appear to be used as they are both 90s style mechanisms.
Between 2012 and 2015, the signal protecting Aurora St. was replaced.  It has a newer WCH gate mechanism, and the lights were carried over.  It was still bell-less at the time.
Also between 2012 and 2015, all of the gates were restriped with the newer style gate striping.  The western signal's gate mechanism was also replaced.
Between 2015 and 2018, the lights on the eastern signal were replaced.  They're still Electro-Tech's LEDs but are now in 12"x24" Safetran frames.

In July 2019, major bell changes occured.  The ASC E Bell was removed from the driveway signal, and GS Type 3s were added to the western signal and the Aurora St. signal.  At the same time, this crossing received a new bungalow, but for some reason, Wood St. did not.

The newer Aurora St. signal.  I'm not sure why a bell was added to this signal and not the eastern signal for Washington St.
