This crossing has just a crossbuck.

There is also a little miniature 7.5 inch gauge railroad there. I wonder if the signals activate for it?

Of course that has to be on the other end of the state from me... :glare:


That happens to me quite often. Someone (or me) finds something interesting in Ohio, and it turns out to be on the other side of the state.

This crossing on the miniature railroad at the Centreville Amusement Park in Toronto is protected by a Miniature Train Company signal, it could also be a Chance Rides signal as I think they bought Miniature Train Company.

Here is another crossing with a Miniature Train Company signal.

There are several other crossings with no signals or signage. I don't feel like posting those here.

The crossing lights on the lamp posts are likely leftover from before the miniature signals were put in. I do wonder if they still function though, especially because the crossbucks have since been removed.

Here is a signalized crossing. There are two signals due to the road being one-way.

Here is a signalized crossing that isn't one-way.

Another one-way signalized crossing but with one signal.
https://www.google.com/maps/@29.9846557 ... 6656?hl=en

This crossing has a gate-less signal!

Some or all of the signalized crossings use to have just the crossbucks and stop signs. But I'm too lazy to post the streetviews of them here. :Roll: I think these are enough.


I actually got the New Orleans City Park on my to-do list in early 2018, to both take photos of and videos of these crossings.


Awesome! I look forward to seeing them! :TUP2:


I just took a couple of videos of these miniature crossings in New Orleans City Park:


(Note, this one was done on my cell phone instead of my camcorder because the battery in my camcorder died on me)

Whiskey River Railway at the Little-A-Merrick-A theme park in Marshall, WI has quite a few miniature signals.







Riverside and Great Northern Railway in Wisconsin Dells has several as well:



...including a wigwag! (not my video)



The 600mm (2') gauge Rock River Cannonball at Thresherman's Park in Edgerton has numerous crossings of the unpaved park roads, but the only active warning device at any of them is a manually activated WRRS bell at the crossing by the boarding station.

I've posted those in this thread a while ago.

Full signals protecting a crossing at the entrance to the Northeastern Ohio Live Steamers in Medina, Ohio. Looks like there is a wigwag there!

There is also this crossing on the property.
