    Does anyone agree with me? In most American routes like LIRR and the new Peninsula Corridor, the crossings gates stay down 24/7 and even if trains do come, you wait an average of 15-20 minutes until a train does come. That is NOT how real railroads operate. In CSX: HH, the crossing gates are animated and do come down whenever a train approaches, and go back up when the tracks in both directions are clear. Why can’t DTG do that on consoles, and in the LIRR and Peninsula Corridor? In the past streams of the Peninsula Corridor, DTG stated that they don’t have the “tech” necessary for this, but how were they able to do such a thing in CSX:HH, eh? With TSW 2020 out, and the new Mastery update on, I think it’s time for DTG to start their engines and make TSW better by adding animated crossing gates!

    Oh, don't forget the German routes, they would also look better with animated RR crossings!

    I totally agree. Even good old Microsoft Trainsimulator (released eighteen and a half year ago) had this feature. Besides that the road traffic also needs some attention.

    Agree and on the German and UK routes they should had the warning sound to them. so that the cars known when the trains are coming and also on the West Somerset railroad, Northern Transpenine, and Tess Valley line they should have an animated railroad worker open and close the gate railroad crossings.

    Eh. Maybe that could be something cool to add to such an update.

    If you want this feature, how about make a seperate thread?

    I would defiantly like to see animated rail crossings, id also like to see more randomized problems, like a truck stuck across the railwayline,
    That would give us the option of ramming into it

    Technically traffic doesn't go through the gates because the crossing gates are down. How is traffic supposed to go through in this situation? If the gates did go down and up, then traffic would have space and be allowed to go through (I don't think that DTG should promote illegal activity by having cars go around the gates).

    Its not that the gates are down, its that its just never an option for them to cross the roads. Have you ever noticed that when the gates are down there's never a car waiting at it? One of my favorite parts about any train sims are the crossings and seeing cars cross the tracks in the distance so I agree with your stance.

    It upsets me to see the gates down all the time they never go up. I will sit at station for 2minutes and the railroad crossing that’s 300ft away is down the whole time.

    Yea, it’s also pretty annoying to have the bells sound all the time:(
