A Focus on the Rialto Ave. and …
… “G” Street Grade Crossings
Part IV (of I-VI)
Looking west from the “G” Street grade crossing, the switches here have traditional looking frogs (below center) like AT&SF had and NOT the smooth going over spring frogs that Union Pacific is famous for.
In that above photo, note the SIDE guard rails. They appear to act as spring rails, and move away from the rail as the flanges go through them.
There are those signals by the I-215 Freeway. In a strange development, grade crossing panels are being put on top of trackside concrete boxes (lower right).
