The train clears the crossing. I would eventually see it again passing through Glendora, MS while I was trying to photograph the entire line.

Notice in Picture 48 that the rear lights on the northeastern signal aren't functional because the train is on the other track. The southeastern signal's lights aren't functional at all, but the bell on it does however, ring, at the time I was there.

 

I didn't get a track view facing north photo via Track 1, but north of this crossing, you can actually bypass three crossings on the Yazoo Subdivision and go towards either Rivergate Drive, or Hollywood Street #1, which are both located in Memphis, Tennessee. I found this to be connected via satelite view on various Maps.
