X is for Crossbuck
Yes, we know Crossbuck doesn’t start with an X, but they are shaped like one!
A crossbuck is placed at a level crossing, which is an intersection where a road and a railway line cross, in order to warn non-railway traffic.
At Central BC Railway and Forestry Museum, we have several places where our minirail and roadways cross. In these locations, we are always sure to have a crossbuck displayed!
Our newest and most impressive example is pictured here. This crossbuck was assembled this past summer by a group of wonderful volunteers with parts salvaged from the Hansard Lake Bridge.
