Railroad crossings in Video Games

Postby TheSignalMan2000 » Fri Jan 04, 2013 11:10 pm

If you notice that in some video games (if you exclude any Simulator games, Tycoon games, and Mods), you'll happen to see some railroad crossing signals, I'm saying not a whole lot of games have them, but some do.

The most games you'll see crossings in are from free-roaming games or (street) racing games.

These games are the games I know that has Railroad crossings in them (Note these are from games I remember from the top of my head, but they're more games out there than I can think):
Gran Turismo 2
Need for Speed Underground 1
Need for Speed Underground 2
Grand Theft Auto San Andreas
Grand Theft Auto V (based on tiny section of a trailer I seen)


If their is more games that I haven't listed, tell me.

Mario Kart 64 has a course with crossing signals in it.
There should be a legal limit as to how humid it can be on any given day during the summer here in the South...

Hmm, I never thought about that game having it. I'm mostly a Sony person, I never much played (doesn't mean I haven't) anything from Nintendo or Microsoft (Xbox) :Unsure:

The course is Kalimari Desert. You can look it up if you want.

Cruising USA for the N64 has a railroad crossing in the Death Valley Level. Also Fall Out: New Vegas has tons of railroad crossings in the game. The lights are 12X20 and the gate mechs appear to be WCH style
