Vicksburg was the former crossing of the Pennsylvania Railroad (GR&I branch) and the Grand Trunk Western main line.  The crossing was originally controlled by a crossing gate/smash board and this interlocker was installed in the 1920's.  The interlocker was controlled from the operators bay in the Union station.  Photo by Dale Berry, 2002.
