Got a video of the new signal on the last day of February:
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!

I'm surprised the railroad doesn't put up some kind of small barricade around part of the cantilever base and the highway to... well, at a minimum, try to absorb a little of the impact should something stray from the roadway again. There's not enough room for a full fledged fence, but at a minimum they could at least erect a number of small steel poles... similar to what states erecting the cable barriers along the interstates use...
I mean, unless it's just so close to the highway already that engineering studies show it's not possible.

Got a recording of the new signal in action a few days ago, and will get it uploaded shortly.
