Led upgrade for Harvard Ave #2, and Northern Blvd in Independence.

Yesterday I went out railfanning over on the UP Sedalia Sub, as well as the BNSF Marceline Sub. While I was in Independence, I decided to take a visit to the KCS Mexico Sub since I've noticed that KCS has replaced the lights at Harvard Ave #2 and Northern Blvd to Leds.

Both crossings appeared to have gotten Leotek EV series Leds installed in their respective light frames. I assume this was done very recent since the last time I went by both crossings, they still had their original incandescent lights. Scott Ave #2 has also gotten an Led upgrade as well, but I didn't get a chance to document that crossing and its changes since that crossing is in a not so friendly neighborhood. . I will try to record both crossings in action with the new Leds sometime. I assume Independence Ave, and the Kentucky Rd double crossing has gotten an Led upgrade as well.
