I assume that was an eb train? The hagadorn signals are intermediate I do believe so they default to an approach aspect. The red/red will either upgrade for an eb or stay red for a wb. Something is lined up there but I can't see which direction although given the time I'd guess amtrak.

The east end of cory is what I'm guessing you're seeing are also intermediate. L501 has a light west out of cory. Something just coming out of the tunnel in ph with lights down the mtc.
