Update #843

Postby freebrickproductions » Sat May 28, 2016 11:06 pm

Virginia is now on the site!

36 pictures and 3 videos of 1 new crossing in Ardmore, TN.
2 videos of 1 updated crossing in Bell Buckle, TN.
50 pictures of 2 new crossings in Clinton, TN.
20 pictures of 1 new crossing in Copperhill, TN.
49 pictures of 3 new crossings in Ethridge, TN.
268 pictures of 12 new crossings in Lawrenceburg, TN.
43 pictures and 1 video of two new crossings in Lenoir City, TN.
169 pictures and 1 video of 9 new crossings in Loretto, TN.
164 pictures and 4 videos of 5 new and 1 updated crossing in Nashville, TN.
39 pictures and 1 video of 2 new crossings in Oliver Springs, TN.
103 pictures of 5 new crossings in Shelbyville, TN.
20 pictures of 1 new crossing in Gettysburg, PA.
27 pictures and 1 video of 2 new crossings in Strasburg, PA.
29 pictures of 1 new crossing in Emporia, VA.
38 pictures of 2 new crossings in Lynchburg, VA.

Probably one of my biggest updates yet! It's certainly the biggest update Tennessee has received in a while though. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your view point), due to life getting in the way, I wasn't able to get Alabama updated. However, I decided to do Pennsylvania instead, since I had some pictures from there that I hadn't posted yet. Alabama will probably be next week though.

Let me know if you spot any errors so I can fix them, thanks!
There should be a legal limit as to how humid it can be on any given day during the summer here in the South...

1 minor correction on 17th Ave N in Nashville... the date at the bottom should be 2015, not 2016. :Tongue1:

As I was going through the update, I noticed in Strasburg PA where you mentioned the signals at Paradise Ln had been replaced. :Sad:

I found a video with a partial view of the new signals. They still have 8 inch lights (with LED's it appears) and still a mechanical bell, but it only rings as the gates lower. A shame the RACO's are gone, but at least the went "old school" a little bit.

Thanks! I'll get that fixed after I do my next one here in a few days. (Though how do y'all know I didn't go forward in time to get those shots? :Tongue2: Other than the obvious fact that the 8 inch lights have since been replaced. :Sad: )

Yea, it is a shame that the RACOs are gone. From the pictures and videos I've seen of the new signals, it appears to be all WCH equipment. Though based on my video of the signals, they were probably just getting worn out and needing to be replaced.

I found this video that shows the new signals fully. They are indeed 8 inch LED's.

Yep! Shame the bell shuts off when the gates are down though, but at least it rings when the gates rise!

Also, glad to see the embed function works again.
