I believe this is the old Florida Station branch, as in Indian Creek (?) RR out of Frankton. There have been numerous accidents on this crossing, a lot seem to happen at night.

I knew a kid from years back whom I raced soap box with that was involved in an accident at that crossing. His buddy who was driving didn't pay attention and ran right into the train while it was on the crossing. Surprisingly there were no life-threatening injuries.

I almost ran into it last night. It was a NS crew pulling the grain cars out. No lights of any kind at the crossing.
