There should be a legal limit as to how humid it can be on any given day during the summer here in the South...

Got another video of the crossing today. The bell here now rings until the gates rise, interestingly enough! Also, it turns out that the cantilever does work, but it's a bit hard to hear as it's somewhat quiet.

Are the stop lights down the road wired to the NS signals as well? It looks like they stay red until the gates rise for traffic coming towards the camera.

The traffic lights are wired to both crossings along Holmes Avenue. It's always fun when the HMCR is doing a lot of switching at Holmes Avenue, keeping the light red for a long-ish time, and right as they finish up, a train on the NS comes through.

According to some of the other local railfans, you can almost see the steam coming out of their ears! :LOL3:

Got a video today of NS 117 going through this crossing with 8 engines shortly after the HMCR did a bit of switching at their crossing just down the street:
