With the extension of the siding, the old jointed rail was replaced with brand new welded rail. This view looks southeast at the Crooked Creek Bridge          
Cragford, Alabama had the distinction in Atlantic Coast Line/Seaboard Coast Line history as being the only siding on the Lineville Subdivision that was signalled (the signal indication to take the siding also was the indication for whether or not the siding track was clear or occupied). Cragford was on a major grade with compensating curves and near zero visibility leading to the decision to wire the siding.
