NOTE: The FRA has said that this crossing has 5 daily trains, which I told was a bit too low. The main line gets about 15 daily trains, while the spur gets about 1 train per day.

This setup is a little on the unusual side... This is a double crossing setup with four 8" signals, with 2 gates on the outer ends of the crossing. All signals have Federal Signal and Modern Industries incandescent 8" lights. The signals with the gates all have Federal Signals mechanical bells. The inner signals are gateless, and have no bells.
