I posted this sometime last year. I got tired of twisting my body under the layout installing crossing gates so I came up with this idea.
Build everything as a separate unit then install it. It just makes the job so much easier.

How they look working.

Overlaid KB. I was getting my oil changed in Rockland county NY near the CXS line. I took a video of the passing train and doubted the sound on my own video. It worked out perfectly.
