Nice update! A few comments:

You might want to make West Street here grey, since the crossing is closed:

The traffic light here uses GE GT1 LEDs:

St. George Road has two videos, but is only listed to have one on this page:
http://www.rxrsignals.com/Illinois/A-K/Bourbonnais/

The last two rows seem to not have their widths set properly:

Looks like a Safetran/Siemens LED in the wayside signal here:

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

Send me or any other admin a private message or email if you want to submit crossing photos to the site!

Everything fixed/updated, except West St. Bloomer still appears to maintain the signs there despite the road being closed, and the FRA still lists it as an active crossing, so I'm leaving it active for now.

I also noticed that the Update number on the front page is incorrect: It should be 871, not 870.
For 2019, I am planning on going to Charlotte, NC sometime around Late March. I'll be making frequent trips back up to Kentucky, along with a few up in Ohio. I will see about getting RR Crossing Pictures in other parts of TN during 2019 as well.
