Got another video today:


BTW, the signal on the left has a RECO LED gate light mixed in, oddly enough.

The cantilever on the left in both videos looks like it wants to crash into the ground with all that sagging going on. :Laugh:

I think it's just an optical illusion with the traffic light cantilever. If you look at the screenshot from the video below, the engine and the cantilever are pretty much spot on straight.

And right there you just outlined another optical illusion of two trains about to hit each other. :LOL3:

LOL... I'm sure Brick would not be too happy to be standing where he was if that indeed was the case.

I probably wouldn't have posted this when I did if it was! :Laugh: Also, someone has since struck the gate on the right, which then got hit by a train, so it has a new gate again and two new incandescent RECO gate lights. The only reason I know this is because I got to see the signal maintainers cleaning up the aftermath.
