I dunno, the only gated crossing I can think of is pretty much in the middle of nowhere.

Come to think of it, I can think of two more in remote places, but none in urban areas.

Same here. Only exception I can think of is one on the Ffestiniog railway, which is a heritage railway anyway.

I downloaded your crossing grf when I started my game with the UK Renewal Set, and found it rather amusing that the old style gates were only found in the centre of towns, and on the outside of towns, the normal flashing lights prevailed.

Hmm, well perhaps have the grf simple remove the ttd lights and replace it with nothing? Or just a stop sign?

I'm just throwing suggestions here, I dunno how realistic or feasable these ideas are.

I was just curious if you had any plans to make the gates appear outside of towns too, or just in them?

Also, I wonder if it is possible to change gated crossings over to modern boom gate crossings in the later years?

Just some suggestions, becuase it's a really nice level crossing.


Yeah I realised this as well but never got round to it. Maybe I could do half gates for the rural roads.

Boom crossings - could be done but there's no way to make the switch over automatically (as far as I know) so you'd have to change .grfs.

New sounds! if rural crossings were changed to little X's then there would only be the engine sound, mabey sort of a feature telling the train to whistle could be used :?:

Doesnt this happen with every type of crossing - the train will never give way - the vehicles must or it gets squished.

Solution to this: Don't park your buses on the crossings.

The word "try" comes to mind here.

Also "Stop repeatedly bumping your questions, when someone has an answer, they'll bloody well post it" comes to mind.

Ha I beg to differ! What about the Mid-Norfolk Railway in Dereham? The 2 crossings are still using traditional wooden gates, and that is right in the middle of a town!
Image
The Crossing I am talking about, here they are just replacing the gates, but not with modern ones, with new traditional wooden gates.

Image
The crossing half a mile north of the previous picture, also cleaned up.

Is this not a heritage railway? Or is it actually a fully in-use railway?

I'm sure they have some on the Severn Valley Railway, but that's right in the rural areas.

I've seen some automated wooden gates, with modern flashing lights, can't for the life of me think where though.

Let us not forget other styles of gating in the rural areas.

Some are unmanned gates - when you get to one you have to phone the signalman to ask if you can *OPEN* the gates to cross, then *CLOSE* the gates once you've gone through, phoning the signalman again to confirm you've got across.

Some are simply lighted - a red and a green light. No barriers.

And then there are the ones without barriers at all. Look both ways for trains!

Then there are the half-boomed and full-boomed modern crossings with the modern light styles, of course.

All this is from the highway code... :P

I prefer british trains and crossings to the North American ones, here are the few differences.

UK sound: Wee, Waw, Wee, Waw...
North America Sound: Ding Ding Ding Ding...

UK Operation: Yellow light, to red flashing lights, then gates/barriers go down if there are any
North America Operation Just red lights barriers go down if any.

Look: Totally different
