I think it might not've been set-up all the way is all.

And the crossing seen in action, from a sharp dutch angle: :Tongue2:

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!

It is too narrow for two cars to fit under the bridge, so drivers have to stop and wait for cars coming from the other direction.

There is a similar sign on the other side of the bridge.

Not sure why, but there's a 3M light being used on a Crouse-Hinds or Siemens T-Signal, or whatever you call it.

It's gone now.
What's this too?

Some interesting signals there. Bummer that they're gone.

Looks like it was due to the (abandoned) crossing just before the intersection:

Area Speed Limit Sign in Mooers, New York.
https://www.google.com/maps/@44.9575506 ... 6656?hl=en
----------------
American English-French bilingual stop sign in Champlain, New York. Obviously it's there because it is at a border crossing along French speaking Canada, still pretty cool seeing a French-English Stop sign in the States instead of Canada. Also pretty interesting that it is "ARRÉTEZ" instead of "ARRÊT".

Here is another one in Beebe Plain, Vermont. This one looks more like a normal Canadian one.

And here is a less professional looking one near by.

It appears that these Hawk Signals in San Juan, Puerto Rico have the amber light flash constantly. I presume the amber signal would go to solid when the system activates which is probably better than being dark when not active and then go through several flashing amber faces when active and then going to solid. Hopefully the red lights only light up solid and not an alternating flash afterwords.
