Are you talking about a crossing gate signal, or train control semaphore signals or something else. Most people use slow motion switch machines, like the tortoise, to animate signals. A wig-wag crossing signal might be harder.

First could you change the font you are using - it is VERY hard to read.

Secondly we have to know what you are trying to do plus thetype of operating system you are using - DC - DCC - etc.
