Railroad Crossing, Wyandotte, Michigan, Detroit, Toledo & Ironton Railroad, October 1925

Summary

Multiple-track railroad crossings, where a roadway crosses more than one railroad track, are particularly dangerous. A train on or near the crossing on one track can block motorists' view of another train approaching the crossing on a different track. Crossings like this were some of the first to be protected with automated warning devices and gates.
