Photos from August 2008.  At the time, the crossing had 12"x20" incandescent lights, 4" RECO incandescent gate lights, and a Safetran mechanical bell.  Click here to see the video of this train.

The US&S gate mechanism replaced an older Safetran gate mechanism in the mid 2000s.

In mid 2011, all of the lights on the signals were upgraded to LED.
