Interesting! The tracks weren't severed about three months prior:

Abandoned cantilever signal at a former crossing in Oak Hill, West Virginia.

Back in 2008 the signal still had lights along with a 45 degree crossbuck of all things!

There was also another signal that also had a 45 degree crossbuck!

The crossing is gone but a cantilever (without the lights) and a relay cabinet remains.

That doesn't really look like an out of service crossing...
R.I.P. HMCR 8933; 1951-2013. Hasn't been moved since it was put next to Huntsville High School in 2015.

Send me or any other admin a PM/e-mail if you want to submit crossing photos to the site!
