This crossing is located on the MRL 2nd Subdivision.

 

*The FRA has two accidents recorded here. However, one of them seems to be meant for a nearby crossing, which may now be closed, so I'm only counting one here.

The relay case.
An old, empty mast and an old, faded DOT tag stand next to the crossing. Think the mast may have originally been for the crossing's power supply?

An ex-BNSF/GECX Dash-9, an MRL SD70ACe, an MRL SD40-2XR, and another MRL SD70ACe work as the train's DPUs. The MRL units are manned DPUs that were added to the train here in Livingston to help it tackle grades to the west of here.
