Signal on the left: 2 pairs of Safetran 12x24 inch lights with Dialight Ball LEDs, a Safetran Type 3 electronic bell, a Safetran gate mechanism, and RECO LED gate lights.
Signal on the right: 2 pairs of Safetran 12x24 inch lights with Dialight Ball LEDs, a dead NEG electronic bell, a Safetran gate mechanism, and RECO LED gate lights.

This crossing is a pretty modern one, with a pair of CSX signals installed in the mid-2000s (by 2007, certainly). The right-hand signal originally had a Safetran Type 3 e-bell installed on it, but was replaced with the current e-bell sometime between 2009 and 2014. However, it seems that it can't keep a working bell as the current NEG e-bell died as well, though the 10 year old Safetran on the far side is still working fine. This crossing is located right next to CP ALATEN, which was guarded by a set of old L&N Searchlight signals up until the end of 2015 when CSX installed the current Safetran "Vader" signals seen to replace them. This crossing is also the only signalized crossing between the Alabama State Line and Wauhatchie (near Chattanooga, TN), along with being the only at-grade crossing along this single-track section of the Chattanooga Sub between New Hope, TN and Guild, TN. Not sure why they haven't double-tracked through here yet, though I suppose Lake Nickajack being located along this section may have something to do with it.

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