A view of the crossing. The lights are 12"x24". There is no bell seen in the signal in pictures 1 and 2. The signal in Picture 3 has a WCH mechanical bell. The signal is on the wrong side because the tracks are too close to the other side of the road.

It appears that in the almost 10 years between visits to this crossing, this extra gateless mast was added to the crossing. It just has a US&S base and not much else to it.
