train approaching level crossing

Last to arrive

When you see someone on foot racing a train, it usually ends the same way.

Entering the crossing well after the warning signals have started and stepping off as the gates finish closing, this person misses the trains signal changing from red to green. Although the train was travelling at a moderate pace it was then clear to accelerate.

Happily the train was running as normal and pulled up but relying on normal operation and ignoring the other layers of protection is taking a lot of responsibility, here foolishly assuming the train must stop.
