Overview of crossing. Right after I took this picture the crossing started up. I don't have pictures of the train because I took a video of it. Click http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3a9ZSTU9aVY to see the video. You can tell I wasn't expecting a train. You'll also hear North Ave. starting up.

The 4 signals closer up. 3 regular signals and a cantilever. All crossing parts are from Safetran, You can see the backup of cars in these 2 pictures from the train.

Looking east. The North Ave. crossing is in the distance. You can still see plenty of cars that were waiting for the train.
Looking west. You probably can't see it, but the rear of that train is just over the hill in the far distance.
