McNickle Drive's MI bell replaced

Post by Ethan the Railfanner » Sun Jan 06, 2019 8:57 am

I was scouting along Google Maps and looking at RR crossings, when I looked at McNickle Drive in street view, I had found out that its MI bell was replaced with an NEG E-Bell! No pictures at this time, but here's proof that it's been replaced: https://www.google.com/maps/@35.9718565 ... 312!8i6656

(The lights and the gate mechs remain unchanged too.)
For 2019, I'll be making frequent trips back up to Kentucky, along with a few up in Ohio. I will see about getting RR Crossing Pictures in other parts of TN during 2019 as well. I may also see about getting out to South Carolina at some point for crossings as well, but that remains to be seen for right now.

Google caught the crossing in action in 2009.

Nice! That must be a high-trafficked crossing.

Yes it is. ~20 Trains go through this crossing a day.
