Came across a short video sequence of Wellcox during the CP Rail days.  While staring into the screen reminiscing, thought perhaps the group would like to have a look.

It is not action packed, but does show what Wellcox should look like.  It is always a shock to see the yards in their present condition.

An interesting video of the Dayliner I just found on Youtube. Check out the unique camera angle from the 26 second mark!

A sequence of three pictures, taken a few seconds apart, at the new Saghalie Rd. crossing between the new Tyee Rd and Catherine St. crossings (at around 8:20 pm last Sunday). Both RDCs are heading back from the station at the end of their work day, empty... bound for their stall at the roundhouse a short distance away.
 
1) Flashing lights activated:

Whoops! I stand corrected. I'm meant 6133. I'll correct the number in my other posts.

New grade crossing...Hmm.  They don't even get the Railway Crossing sign correct.  The red outline is supposed to go around the entire X, not just the long edges of the individual bits...

I wonder if the cross pieces are cut from bulk aluminum material that already has the red strips prepainted the whole length.
 
Picture below is crossbucks we're used to...CN Singh Street crossing in Kamloops.

Whether or not the cross bucks have stripes across the ends must be dependent on the supplier and/or manufacturer.
 
I crossed the E&N north of Cobble Hill station at Thain Road and found there were no end stripes on the cross bucks there.  The E&N must buy the or make them without the end stripes.

... or maybe the crossbars were bolted together backwards. In other words, perhaps the rear bar is intended to be in front (one bar being made with the full outline and the other with the breaks).

Realistically, that's irrelevant.  Every road sign needs to conform to the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD).  Signage is supposed to be the same so that it conveys the same message regardless of where the driver comes from.  A stop sign is that shape and colour across the country for a reason.  Same goes for all the other signs and that includes the railway crossing sign.

True. That's why I suspect (as I mentioned earlier) that both pieces of the sign were made correctly. It just that the wrong pieces were assembled, or the pieces are assembled backwards.
 
I'll have a close look at the offending crossbucks when I down there next time to see if it is really just back-to-front.

I doubt that would help.  Remember there's no red on the ends of any of the boards, which would still be incorrect.

As a person who drives all over western North America; I can tell you that every province & state's road signs differ from the next province/state; with one exception: RR crossing crossbucks. That being said, Canadian wordless red crossbucks are universal in every province; and the USA's "Railroad Crossing" are universal in every state.
 
This is the first time I have seen the "redless" ends anywhere.

I believe that is because the rr xing signs are the only ones that the feds have any say on both here and down south.
 
Anyway it is a minor glitch that really won't matter until some clueless idiot gets darwined there, then some liar (oops i mean lawyer) might just pick up on it.  So maybe we don't want to be increasing the likelihood that this discussion will get picked up in a Google search
