The first signal. Not entirely sure why there are two bells on this signal, or even which one works, but I suspect the one on the gate mast is the functional one.

The second signal. This also has a pair of LED 12 inch McCain signals mounted to the cantilever arm, due to the neighboring signalized intersection.

A pair of wayside signals stand near the crossing.
