All crossings have barriers and flashing red lights, with the exception of some in [[Los Santos]]. The barriers go down when a train is near the crossing, but many times, the train will be going too fast for the barriers to be fully down. In the [[Bone County|desert]], at times, the trains will be going at full speed, and there is only a split-second warning before a train crosses. A train strike at this speed may kill the player instantly. Civilian drivers will also attempt to cross after a few seconds anyway, and at times, they will attempt to cross as soon as the barriers go back up, knocking the barriers down. Pedestrians will not stop crossing the tracks, so some of them may be killed by an oncoming train.

All crossings (with the exception of some in [[Los Santos (3D Universe)|Los Santos]]) have barriers and flashing red lights. The barriers will lower when a train is approaching the crossing. However, trains travel very fast and will often pass the crossing before the barriers have fully lowered. In the [[Bone County|desert]], where the railway lines are straight, trains will often be travelling at full speed, giving only a split-second warning of when they are about to pass. An impact at this speed may kill the player instantly. Because the barriers do not extend for the full length of the road, other drivers will often attempt to pass a closed barrier by driving around it, putting them at risk of being hit by an oncoming train. Pedestrians do not stop crossing the tracks, which puts them at risk of being killed by a train as well.
   
The trains do not stop for anything nor do they blow a horn, so there will be no warning of a crash. The trains are strong enough to even push aside a [[Rhino]] with ease. The barrier-less crossings in [[Los Santos]] may be very dangerous; there are no barriers, no lights, and the traffic lights will not signify a train either. Civilians will not stop for a train here, nor do pedestrians, and at times, when the drivers stop at a red light, they will be right on the tracks, making them very prone to being hit by a train. However, vehicles normally do not explode instantly upon impact, but this has been seen in the mission [[Wrong Side of the Tracks]].

Trains will not stop if an obstacle is on the tracks, nor does a horn signify that they are approaching. The open crossings in [[Los Santos (3D Universe)|Los Santos]] must be passed with care as they do not have barriers or lights, and the traffic lights do not signify a train either. Pedestrians do not wait at the crossings, nor do vehicles. At some crossings, because of the location of the traffic lights, a long queue of vehicles can result in some vehicles waiting on the tracks. However, with the exception of [[Wrong Side of the Tracks|one mission]], vehicles do not normally explode if they are hit by a train.

Railroad Crossing Open Los Santos (GTA SA)

A Railroad Crossing in Los Santos in the open position.

Railroad Crossing Closed Los Santos (GTA SA)

Same crossing in the closed position.

Railroad crossings are places in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto V where vehicles and pedestrians can cross the railways.


DescriptionEdit

GTA: San AndreasEdit

All crossings (with the exception of some in Los Santos) have barriers and flashing red lights. The barriers will lower when a train is approaching the crossing. However, trains travel very fast and will often pass the crossing before the barriers have fully lowered. In the desert, where the railway lines are straight, trains will often be travelling at full speed, giving only a split-second warning of when they are about to pass. An impact at this speed may kill the player instantly. Because the barriers do not extend for the full length of the road, other drivers will often attempt to pass a closed barrier by driving around it, putting them at risk of being hit by an oncoming train. Pedestrians do not stop crossing the tracks, which puts them at risk of being killed by a train as well.

Trains will not stop if an obstacle is on the tracks, nor does a horn signify that they are approaching. The open crossings in Los Santos must be passed with care as they do not have barriers or lights, and the traffic lights do not signify a train either. Pedestrians do not wait at the crossings, nor do vehicles. At some crossings, because of the location of the traffic lights, a long queue of vehicles can result in some vehicles waiting on the tracks. However, with the exception of one mission, vehicles do not normally explode if they are hit by a train.

A Freight on a Railroad Crossing in Los Santos.

Railroad Crossings reappear in Grand Theft Auto V in various parts of Los Santos and Blaine County. In Los Santos, Railroad Crossings extend from an area close to Vespucci Beach, to the Port of Los Santos. Freights can often be seen carrying containers, Wellcars and oil tanks. In Los Santos and Blaine County, railroad gates are present on most crossings, and will close and block the road whenever a Freight is approaching. In Los Santos, barriers extend for the full length of the road, blocking off all approaching traffic. In Blaine County, however, the barriers do not extend for the full length of the road.

Similar Railroad Crossings can be found in Los Santos, but these do not have gates and are instead used by the Los Santos Transit.

GlitchesEdit

  • The railroad crossing lights seem to be glitched in one of two ways in GTA V, depending on the location of the railroad crossing. In Los Santos or Blaine County, the gates will lower and a bell will sound whenever a train approaches, but the warning lights will never start flashing. However, the opposite is true in North Yankton, where the lights will always be flashing even when no train is in sight.
