    Does anyone have information or a photo of the KCS/Blacklands interlocking at Gibsland, TX? I've been told that the Blacklands track is raised above the KCS track and gapped for the width of a wheel. This allows the KCS track to remain intact so the wheels can pass through the interlocking without the pounding of a normal diamond. Thanks for anything.

    Though a lack of horns, sirens, and other attention-getting audible devices. Perhaps there are devices to vibrate the rails like cell phones. :rolleyes:
