Hope everyone is alright!
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!

The engineer didn't even blow the horn at all!
Also, that driver will get cited. That crash was scary though, notice the other half of the truck continuously being knocked around by the train cars.

Just from the quad gates alone that should be enough to tell you it's a quiet zone...

I know that, but they should be blowing the horn in emergency!
