Default Compostion Help

Picture of an interesting signal. To be honest I'm not sure how to present this. I'm open to any suggestions on what to do or to drop it if it's not worth pursuing. Thanks,

Trey

crazy idea: park your car opposite like it is waiting for a train.

I got it on but I really liked that idea. If I hadn't, I would for sure tried that next time I was at that signal. It's about an hour and a half away from me. Thanks for the suggestion.

I don't understand how that works. I mean, people won't even stop at stop signs on railroad crossings.

Today, an apparatus like that would not be approved for installation at all. Kind of surprised it's even still up. I dont even know if regular old lighted crossbucks without a gate are even allowed to be installed anymore, I think it has to have lights and a gate, or just a pole with crossbucks and no lights.

It's an interesting thing, I have passed it many times but never thought to take a picture.

I had ridden by it several times this year and thought about taking a shot of it but never did. I've never seen anything like it and like Troy said, I'm surprised it hasn't been taken down. Hopefully it won't be removed anytime soon.
