Florida Northern Railroad - Fixed Approach Semaphores

 

At the diamond crossing of the Florida Northern RR with CSX Transportation, there are two fixed approach semaphores to the north and south on the Florida Northern line.  Northbound approaching the station, the Florida Northern is in street trackage (NE Osceola Ave.), putting the approach signal on the curb like a traffic light.
