I've been putting together a level crossing that we can put on the railway.

I didn't want a generic Hornby one so got a kit and adapted it so we can lift it off and store it when finished in the Garden.

Work inside is coming along and we now have a cowboy watching to make sure the bridge is ok 😁

The tunnel and hill are one piece and can be lifted off if access is needed to the point. Signal placement isn't ideal but I'm having to use a bit of "artistic license". If I put it further away from the tunnel the clearence is very tight. It does the job though. An in built sensor turns the signal red when a train passes then starts the timer to go through the light sequence. If the point is thrown the signal will stay red until it is put back in favour of the mainline. Being a traintech sensor signal I can buy another 2 sensors and place them along the outside section and link with a wire to replicate block signalling in the future.
