A return trip to the crossing on July 13th, 2014 shows no real changes to the crossing, except for the warning signs.

 

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.
