The second ex-CREX was 2930, shown here at the very difficult to reach, east end of Kinsac siding.  L507 had arrived just moments before, and entered the siding.  They were concerned they might not fit, and asked 120 to hold back a bit from the switch, but in the end, all went down according to plan.

New LED signals are being installed here, including a 3-head one as the leave siding signal, although they are not yet in service.  New approach signals between here (mile 19.1) and Windsor Jct. (mile 15.6) are being installed as well.  The junction itself can't be far behind.

Sorry about the "dark side" photo and video.  There was just no place to stand on the other side of the track.
