Oklahoma part 1: Ardmore on 7/21

First of all, at this crossing, this a "double crossing" setup. It is where there are four signals, two for each crossing, and regardless of which track the train is on, the two outer signals go off and the gates go down at the same time, but, the only inner signal that goes off is the one on the crossing that the train is on. And then, that inner signal's gate goes down five to ten seconds after the outer gates begin going down
