Bridge is slow

As it should be. This is not an inexpensive track set, by design.
Also level crossing isn't dangerous if you use no road vehicles.
a. How do you have a level crossing with an enclosed, pressurized tube?
b. You're not using road vehicles? Then you don't need a level crossing for vehicles that don't exist. Problem solved.
Aside from that, road tunnels would be far less expensive than VacTrain tunnels. And road bridges are considerably easier on the speed of road vehicles than VacTrains.EDIT:
Yes, get the Brainum Bridge for the VacTrain. If you don't have JGR's Patch Pack (which has the chunnel patch), you cannot do without it for VacTrains because underwater tunnels are not possible.
