SH5639 : Press the Buzzer - Close the Gates

taken 7 years ago, near to Porthmadog, Gwynedd, Great Britain

Press the Buzzer - Close the Gates
Press the Buzzer - Close the Gates
Yes, a standard gauge railway crossing, to east of Porthmadog station, where surprisingly the barriers don't go down UNTIL the train pulls up to a device (less than 50 yards from the road), and the driver presses a buzzer to close them.

How crazy is that?
