  1. Cut Off Crossing

    Cut Off Crossing

    This crossing is opposite of the distributor facility. A complex crossing is justified because it is on a major street. A exempt sign is placed to notify vehicles that require to make the mandated stop to continue as the track service is discounted.
  2. Alcohol Travel Ends

    Alcohol Travel Ends

    I ran across this Beer Distributor in Beaumont Texas. The track has been cut as you can see. I figure cutting the track the way it is shown enforces no service to the facility. I conclude that business may have been redirected to trucking.
  3. Old Crossing

    Old Crossing

    I found this Railroad Crossing near the BNSF Yard in Beaumont, Tx. From what I see this was once vehicle crossing until it was closed off. I did travel to the outside of the yard and found a road that ends at the Rail Yard. The sign sits quitely in the brush along the ditch near the street.
