Re: Google Street View

This is certainly a very unusual pedestrian signal, considering half of it is redundant! https://www.google.com/maps/@42.9762122,-82.4240982,3a,15y,94.44h,98.88t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1siftE895zKEAk2ODUHDFJUw!2e0!5s20190501T000000!7i16384!8i8192 Here is what it was like in 2013: https://www.google.com/m...

The West Livingstone Street crossing in Orlando, Florida has became quite an unusual setup since SunRail started installation pedestal and quote gates on crossings, or just replacing old setups entirely. https://www.google.com/maps/@28.5475064,-81.3811356,3a,50.3y,77.54h,94.71t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1sA...

Re: Weird Bell Mounts

I can remember around a year or two ago I found a CSX crossing with mounted Safetran Type 3 E-Bells, It was somewhere in Florida but I don't know where.
