Drivers need to be careful and obey the lights, or else there could be tragic consequences as in this terrible incident...

Lovely juxtaposition of a train each way simultaneously crossing the level crossing, viewed from the bridge.

Rather fine quality footage. My only point is that the signal noise must surely annoy the residents close to the railway line.

Good HD footage. Enjoy.
