Five lights in X pattern blink to tell train driver that crossing ahead is working and his train has been detected. We passed many of these new automated crossings, including one where these lights were off. The driver slowed the train way down and blew his whistle extensively. Just as we approached the crossing, the gates started to come down. This is a common feature elsewhere in the world, except the US.

The siding on the right has its own crossing "supervision" signal as it is on a separate track circuit.
