Remarks:The Spirit of Alaska is just a few miles from its final destination of Anchorage Yard with 8,000+ tons of freight from Whittier. Note the unique automatic horns installed at this crossing. The flashing X indicates to approaching train crews that the system is working, and the two mast-mounted loudspeakers blare the classic long-long-short-long sequence at approaching motorists until the lead unit has cleared the crossing.
Awesome video, but that horn thing is a piece of junk, quite zones serve no purpose. What a shame!

Yeah, the horn sucks. We used to be able to hear the real horn, but this sounds like something off of Microsoft Train Simulator. It doesn't make any sense either, that's nothing but industrial, so not sure why it would be a quiet zone. A few miles down the tracks though it becomes residential, but still. Great video!
