    Modern german type:

    Old west german type:

    In the GDR the red flashing light was located inside the red and white "Andreaskreuz".

    All crossing types can be seen with full gates, two half gates per side, one half gate per side or without any gate. and the gate may or may not have these fences (as in the modern type video) underneath.
    The alternately yellow flashing ones are wrong and look weird.
    It would be really cool if you could do it right from now onward.

    DTG should indeed use these, it surprises me they haven't yet on HHL (as the trailer still showed flashing yellow), even though there already has been enough feedback on it.

    I really hope the one responsible for the crossings takes a good look at this before they are implemented on the next German route. I hope it is apparent to the developers that what we have in the game does not relate to any of the information here and how it is in real life, I hope this will be improved on! :) Thanks for collecting this information for DTG, I hope they appreciate it and make use of it, doesn't get any easier than that :D Maybe DTG Natster can forward this information to the correct person(s)? :)
