This crossing is a weird one. There are two pairs of 12"x24" WCH L.E.D lights with two WCH electronic bells.

 

Note that the second track does not go anywhere in either direction. I don't know if it's done on purpose, or if it will be rebuit.

 

Picture 2 faces West, while picture 3 faces East.

Pictures 5 and 7 show more signal views.

Notice on picture 6 that it says "SIX MILE RD BYPASS". There's a reason for that.

 

This crossing is next to a power plant, and train traffic is expected to get up higher than 13 daily trains. You can see on picture 8 that an overpass is being built next to the crossing. When the overpass is done, the signals and the crossing will be history.

 

I found out through the fuzzyworld3.com website that the overpass was completed in the fall of 2006. This crossing is gone now.
