On the evening of Tuesday, Nov 27, I was walking near the north rail crossing on Roberts Street at the time a northbound train was crossing. The crossing arms lifted and I proceeded across the grade, but I still heard the warning bell of a rail crossing.

Possibly our friendly corporate neighbor is still in need of a bit of work on their timing?
