HVRM Installs New Crossbucks

October 2006

Members of the Hoosier Valley Railroad Museum install 80 new rural crossbucks along the 33-mile Chesapeake and Indiana Railroad. The C&I Railroad received an INDOT Passive Grade Crossing Grant for the installation of the improved, highly reflective crossbucks or "Railroad Crossing" warning signs. HVRM was contacted by C&I to install the crossbucks in the rural areas for a set fee per installation. HVRM accepted the job and new wooden posts were also installed with the improved crossbucks affixed to the tops.

C&I Railroad personnel themselves affixed the new reflective crossbucks to all the electric grade crossing installations along the railroad line. The new signs are a noticeable improvement over the older worn crossbucks.
