    Default Road-Rail Level Crossing does not work in TMR17

    In TMR17 when I place a level crossing (Tside-1t level crossing) two downward arrows appear on the road sides. The tracks readily snap on the track spline points but the roads never snap on the road spline points. If a gap remains between the road and the crossing the cars don't go through. Sometimes the roads will just connect with each other over the crossing and the cars will go through but when the train comes and the gates go down the cars still keep going as they roads are not really connected to the crossing. What is the procedure to make the roads connect properly?

    Depends on what road you are using. If you use the same road as the crossing then they will connect. Some other roads might connect from the crossing others you may have to connect to the crossing.

    Someone suggested to me long ago not even to use the crossings, just stretch the road spline over the track and then sink the road level to the point where the rails show through. That works great for the most part, but not if you want a wood or concrete crossing....

    You can use invisible road to cross the track and place wood or concrete over the track area.

    Jointed Rail has made some track-object crossings that will work. Look for JR wood, for example.

    <kuid2:487560:26011:2> JR Wood Grade Crossing 1
    <kuid2:487560:26010:3> JR Wood Grade Crossing

    and a rubberized crossing as well:

    <kuid:334896:26152> JR Rubber Grade Crossing

    With these you want to "sink" the tracks into the road a bit so that the crossing boards don't stick up too high above the road.

    Thanks for the tip John! Does anyone know of a concrete and steel one? That is replacing the old wood as time goes by, but wood is still good for the classic or rural look...

    There's a concrete one too:

    <kuid:334896:26151> JR Concrete Grade Crossing

    This is marked built-in.
