Re: Manual Net Barrier at KS RR Xing

That's interesting that there's still a couple of crossings in the United States that's still manually-operated. But agreeing with FBP, the reason could be because of the constant trains switching on why the nets are used at this manually-operated crossing, better than being a passive crossing itsel...

Re: Crossing Malfuction/Fails Sightings

I just filmed a crossing that just happen to malfunctioned on me as soon as the train crossed the crossing, and also, one of the lights on the other signal fell off. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gAhSXIYX9dU And the most craziest thing is that CN literally just upgraded this crossing a month ago. ...
