Awhile ago, I picked up some IHC Railroad Crossing Signals on sale. I'm on a very limited budget, so they were a good deal. The only thing I don't like about them is the signals/crossbucks, they are pretty undetailed and crude. However, I want to keep the alternator, sound, and detection. How would I go about hooking them up to a commercial crossbuck kit? I've heard the Details West crossbucks are very good, so I was thinking about those.
