I can't believe no mentioned the hilarious :Censored: Saints Row series. Each game except I think Gate out of Hell has non-active crossings.

There is a railroad crossing on a track in that racing game Blur, when you pass it the first time the signals are non-active. The next time you pass the signals are active. Unfortunately the trains don't move :(

I should've also mentioned Battlefield Hardline.

Derailed and Backwoods has railroad crossings but non-moving trains.

In the mission, Back to School. There is a scene with a homeless guy cleaning the squad cars windscreen but gets turned down and shouts a swear word after the drive away from him after the crossing has raised.

In Watch Dog's. there are a ton of railroad crossings in the Brandon Docks area. Although no trains use them, what makes it even more stranger is that it has Japanese styled gates that are too short. The lights are red on one side and green on the other side! That is weird.

EDIT: There are also some in Pawnee that can be used as blockers. The bells are replica WC Hayes E-bells, 12x20 inch lights, and WC Hayes gate mechanisms.

Both Watch Dogs games have railroad crossings. In 2, the ACE San Francisco line is replicated but not in service

I love the physics of that game... Crossing gates go down with little warning and if you are at full speed, hitting the gates is like slamming into a brick wall. All damage to the truck, none to the gates. :LOL2:

All I can say is... go to 13:25. Wow.

HA HA... that's awesome. I like how the blue truck pulls up to the crossing and waits. Like nothing is going on there. :Roll:
