These distinctive gates were one of the many different types used to separate road from rail.
Most of the time the gates were set across the track, but because trains took precedence over road traffic and pedestrian,
the gates were moved across the road to allow trains safe movement.
The task of moving the gates was undertaken by a crossing keeper or signalman.
If there was no signal box nearby, often a cabin(SS29) was provided,
sometimes with a cottage(SS39) for the crossing keeper.
This plastic kit needs to be assembled and will require paints and glue to complete.
Footprint 1 pair of gates each 95 x 17mm + plastic cobbled stone and planked track crossing.
