This story will be written in 1981 terms of names and places.
In the northern area of Oklahoma City the crossing of Western Avenue and Britton Road is also crossed at an approximate 30 degree angle by Uncle John Santa Fe. I was hired as a brakeman/switchman on the Frisco railroad in August of 1981. (yes, I know it was BN, Inc by then but Frisco corporate culture was/is indelible). The Frisco East yard office is in the southeast area of OKC but I chose to live up north near the town of Edmond. As someone who had never spent time in this town I decided to cruise around and see what this area had to offer. In the dark of night while travelling westward on Britton Road I came to the intersection of Western Avenue and noticed there are railroad crossing gates across all four sides of the intersection. I thought this was fantastic! As I approached the traffic signals suddenly all of the crossing gates lit up and all arms started down. I saw in front of me a Volkswagen whose driver had been caught near the center of the crossing just before the railroad signals activated. I am not sure of the direction the Volkswagen intended to go next, but with all crossing arms going down the Bug did a full 450 degrees of circling in the street before they decided to go left and get out of danger. Then !! A southbound AT&SF freight comes roaring through the crossing at track speed which later research proved to be 50 mph. That was exciting, and the train missed the Bug by only a second or two. It was at that point I determined the Santa Fe told the city at what speed they would travel through town rather than the other way around.
Included is a screenshot of a "street level view" of the crossing which appears to be slightly different than it was 40+ years ago with the addition of barriers between the lanes of traffic. It is otherwise the same view I had in 1981.
