Click on the picture to enlarge it. Can you see the sign with the red arrow? Because of the angle it looks like it is in front of the train. The arrow is pointing to an emergency button. The emergency button is on the other side of the narrow street. There is an arrow next to the emergency button. It is pointing the other way. Arrows light up to tell which direction the train is coming. This is a very small neighborhood train crossing. Note how close the train is to the apartment building on the right!
This is the sign pointing to the emergency button.
This is the emergency button. This sign says to lift up the cover and push the button when there is an emergency. The cover is actually a thick piece of plastic that you slide over.
