There should be a legal limit as to how humid it can be on any given day during the summer here in the South...

Send me or any other admin a private message or email if you want to submit crossing photos to the site!

At this crossing, you have to stop on the tracks.

Some rather old signals at that crossing. They used to still have 8 inch lights back in 2011:

At least the Safetran mechanical bell still remains. Also, did anyone notice the 1 Track sign on the cantilever?
