Union Pacific 2268 Manifest Northbound, Power Inn Road Railroad Crossing, New Electronic Bell, SD60M
Caught this short UP Manifest passing Power Inn Rd at 3:00 PM today on the UP Fresno Subdivision in Sacramento, California. The signal by me had a WCH Mechanical Bell that was replaced a few weeks ago and I was finally able to come out here to get this crossing with it today. The WCH Mechanical Bell had ringing problems and UP switched it out with an electronic bell. earlier this year they extended the mast poles on the gated mast signals. The left LED light looks like its looking downward inside the lenses and Frame. We had some nice thunderstorms last night with lots of heavy rain and theirs still dust flying. This was an all EMD Locomotive Power train. Here's a link to the last time I recorded the mechanical bell working before it was replaced http://youtu.be/oBAKxLoY8z4 More Info Below.
