The HMCR’s new engine, HMCR 9554, an ex-CSX/L&N U23B, had trouble climbing the hill, which is why it took it about 2 and a half minutes to reach the crossing from the initial crossing activation.

Signal on the right: 2 pairs of WRRS 8 inch lights.
The bell is a Safetran mechanical bell mounted on the relay case.
It was pretty neat seeing an ex-L&N engine on an ex-L&N line going through some old L&N signals.

This was the last crossing I caught the HMCR at. I also caught them at Green Cove Road, but that was just them doing some switching, and I’ll use the videos from that in another video for another channel.

Since NS A81 had to go through this crossing twice, I decided to get over to this crossings and record it since you rarely see trains on the yard track at this crossing. As you can see, I was just barely able to get to this crossing before it activated. The only recent change here that I’ve noticed has been that the fading gate arm on the nearer signal was replaced with a new one.
