Hope the testing phase going to plan. Ive just been wiring signals chris. So know  how interesting life can be under the board fixing parts. I used gaugemaster items. Now back to level crossings, hope the ideas you described work chris. No doubt we shall hear more in due course

Yep, it's working a treat, mate. Press the switch and one gate opens (or closes) followed by the second, the track power either side is enabled (or disabled) and it all switches off. Press the switch again and it reverses the sequence.

It's tied in with the up platform starting signal too - for the track power to be enabled on that track the gates must be open and the signal pulled off. The only thing I haven't tested yet in that respect is that the signal shouldn't be able to be pulled off unless the gates are open. I'll test that part when I test the wires for the down signal as well.

The crossing design will get another outing when I get on to Broughton - but that may require interlocking for two signals, it depends on whether or not I feel I have the room to include the up direction station entry signal.
