What about both? Or people who don't like Lex-C lights at all?
There should be a legal limit as to how humid it can be on any given day during the summer here in the South...

Their design is unique, but visibility is another thing about them...

Yep, they ain't very visible except from head on or in low light.

Sorry for drifting a bit off topic but does anyone remember this crossing in a small rural town in Northern Michigan that had it's lights somewhat recently replaced by 12" GRS LEX-C lights?

Wow! I didn't even know that! Glad they kept the Teardrop though! Someone needs to get some updated shots of that crossing if at all possible!

Someone did kind of get footage of the crossing almost three years ago with Pere Marquette 1225 leading an excursion.

Would be nice to get some pics of the new lights on the site though. I also have to wonder where they got the lights from...
