These distinctive gates were one of the many different types used to separate road from rail.
Most of the Time the gates were set across the track, but because trains took precedence over road traffic and pedestrians the gates were moved across the road to allow trains safe ,ovement.
The task of moving the gates was undertaken by a crossing keeper or signalman. if there was no signal box nearby, Often a cabin (SS 29) was provided, sometimes with a cottage (SS39) for the crossing keeper.
This single track crossing features one of the many different types of gates used where roads had to cross the railway on the level. Kit includes 1 pair of gates 95mm x 17mm, plastic cobblestone roadway and a planked crossing deck.
