Years ago when I built a fairly large layout I had one of these Crossing Gates and recall having to raise the in bound and out bound sections of track up to the level of the in-laid track in the accessory. As the locomotive approaches a certain point the gates will come down with a fair amount of reliability and for the most part remain down for the length of the train. All discounting aside, this is a fairly good rendition of a realist gate and will work well for the beginner as well as most of us old hands. There is an option that I would use if I had one or two of these and that is to wire grain of wheat bulbs directly to the section of track that this accessory is guarding for realistic operations.
