This is on the NS TAG Line, according to the FRA, though it later fell under the ownership of the CCKY as a branch line.

The relay case, which still has a power connection but is disconnected.
Track views. The end of the "active" portion of the line is seen in picture 26. Picture 27 looks up the "active" part of the tracks.

 

For some reason, the FRA says this line is still owned by Norfolk Southern (which it's not) and gets 70 trains a day! However, this is highly unlikely as the tracks are extremely overgrown and are blocked off just beyond the crossing.

I also believe the crossing is out of service as the relay case is disconnected and due to the condition of the tracks, even though the FRA marks it as still being active.
