I'm bulding an extensive and heavily used automated train system.
After having enjoyed the achievement of being obliterated by my own automated trains, I would prefer that not happening anymore.
I want to create a proper path through tracks so that I can have some "offical safe routes" that can be used, when I move by foot or with my car / tank across the rails.
Basically, I imagine a system that stops the trains on demand when I want to cross.
Of course, the trains should continue their course as usual once I safely crossed the tracks.
I'm thinking about some kind of switch system that could be activated from either side of the crossing.
Nice-to-have would also be some kind of visual clue whether the system is activated or not, so that I can easily see if my safe path is enabled or not.
The less manual actions needed to achieve this, the better. If the stop could be automatically activated once I approach the crossing (and deactivated when I leave), that would be the best solution I imagine.
High complexity of building the system is not an issue (or even appreciated!).
