A cat-eyed crossbuck!

Facing South.

 

The bridge in picture 3 looks as though it could support 2 tracks, but there's no trace of the other track on the FRA since 1975.

Facing East. This crossbuck is cat-eyed too.

 

The 8" lights are made by Safetran. The mechanical bell is a RRS! A pre-WRRS bell, and can be seen in picture 1.

Pictures 1-5 were taken on November 22, 2006.

A return trip to the crossing on July 13th, 2014, shows both cat-eye crossbucks have been replaced to normal crossbucks.

 

 

On July 15, 2015, I was able to catch the crossing in action! The RRS bell sounded amazing! This is the same train from Intervale Rd #1, and Hallowell Rd. A video is down below!

 

This was very important to get this crossing in action, because in 2016, St. Lawrence & Atlantic cut a section of track out at Danville Junction and now no one runs this track. Maine Department of Transportation still own the track apparently, so its why the crossing remains active, though I wont know for how much longer. The only purpose this track served was for St. Lawrence & Atlantic to run a single hopper full of dried beans to the Boston Baked Bean Co. in Portland. However, this hurt St. Lawrence more, because they were not making much, if any profit from running a single hopper to and from the factory while maintaining the line, signals, etc. That's why St. Lawrence abandoned this part of their line.
