Google Street View pictures of 2 EM signals from 2007. These had 12"x24" lights, 4" RECO gate lights, and a GS Type 1 E Bell. By the end of the 2000s, there were replaced with new WCH signals, however the relay case wasn't replaced, which would be very important in another 13 years.

In November 2020, we see new conduit was installed all around the crossing. Since UP didn't replace the relay case with the EM signals, UP is now putting a new one in, and thus will most likely spell the end of the WCH signals.
