I found this place (which is a similar sort of situation) and was kind of surprised to see that there weren't any signs at all. Is this typical? Are there any rules for this?

Here in rural upstate NY, NS has put small rectangular signs on each side of a private crossing. IIRC from top to bottom reads "PRIVATE CROSSING, STOP SIGN, STOP LOOK AND LISTEN, picture of tracks, NORFOLK SOUTHERN, telephone #. Has been awhile since I passed one to get a picture. Hope this helps!
