Installing stop signs, the Metro way

This photo was taken at Shady Grove train yard (A99) after the new shop addition was built:

Notice that the sign is on the far side of the tracks.  When there is snow on the ground and/or limited visibility a person might very well stop right on the tracks — especially if they aren’t familiar with the yard.

As usual, this was reported but nothing was done.

This is a hole that was made for a stop sign but unfortunately had to be filled in because it is in the middle of the travel lane:

Ooops.
