    "Exempt" Signs...Should They Be Mandatory?

    Personally, I believe the "stop and proceed" policy is dated and unsafe, unless vision at the crossing is obstructed. Also, sometimes "exempt" crossings see use by motorcars.

    Post Unusual Grade Crossing Signal configurations here:

    Alignment Control Couplers

    As Aaron said, check with the hauling railroad. They might be willing to work with your museum. What would be the possibility of transporting by flactcar?
