No westbound crossover??? clarify pls. There are crossover about 1/10 miles of Westshore connection switch, and in front of baseball field.

The "westbound crossover" is on the east side of the Fallon's Siding switch (which coincidentally was part of the original West Shore ROW)

Finally with all this snow fall I went down to the Tift Street Nature Preserve and snow shoed around. I went over to the water tower and all the signals have been changed. I was fortunately enough to catch a small train from either GM or ADM I assume. Like all complaints with these new signals, if you're right in front of the signal, its great viewing. If you're off to the side, not very good.

New signals with the signage about when old rules end and new rules begin:

The GM/ADM train crossing onto the mainline.

CP2 "C" Not the greatest view but I wasn't going to walk on the track to get it either. Zoom in for new rules begin and CR rules end.

I have a video of CSX coming underneath the signals but I'll post that later.

Here is the video. Only 3/4 of the train is recorded.
