Note the construction in the photos
above. BNSF was in the process of added a new main track next to
the WB track, making the old EB main a siding, and adding 3 more new
sidings as well. The lead for the cold storage facility was
realigned slightly as well to connect to the siding tracks. The
photos below show the area after this project was completed.
The signals were moved slightly in the process. The western
signal now has an L&W base, the crossbucks and track signs were
replaced, and blue DOT signs were added. The relay bungalow was
either moved to the southeast quadrant, or another brand new bungalow
