Wow! At least CSX kept the bell!
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!

Pretty crazy to see a public crossing that had an inverted crossbuck only eight years ago! The only other crossing I know of that recently had (has) inverted crossbucks is the one in Hooper, Nevada on the Freemont & Elkhorn Valley Railroad. They are probably the only inverted crossbucks on a public crossing left, although there could be some on an abandon crossing.

Although there is this pair on a rails-to-trails pedestrian crossing in Maryland.
