The E&N crossing at Beachwood Road

This crossing is an example of where a railway crossing sign that was originally installed at a different location was reused at a new location without updating the sign markings. In this case, the sign reads Embleton Rd, 138.32, whereas the actual location of this crossing on the E&N line is at Beachwood Road at mile 137.29.

Mile 138.32 is close to 26th Street in Courtenay, and the only Embleton in the area is Embleton Crescent, which is no where near the E&N line. Just incase it’s actually mile 38.32, that is south of Duncan and about .5 of a mile north of the Koksilah River bridge, with no Embleton Road to be found. The only Embleton Road I could find is in Ontario, but there are no train tracks to be found, so this one is a true mystery.

The position of this crossing was determined using satellite imagery and a bit of math..
