SS56 Level Crossing Gates, inc. pedestrian wicket gates
These distinctive gates were one of the many different types used to seperate 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 was provided, sometimes with a cottage for the crossing keeper. 1 pair of gates each 95 x 17mm + plastic cobbled stone and planked track crossing.
