Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I have never been to the crossing. It must be the Tokyu line, I will check this coming weekend.

When I was a kid, elder friends and I often went to the crossings of railway lines. We placed twigs, leaves and other things on the rail to see how they are crushed by the train. Sometimes the train had to stop and the driver yelled at us. Sorry, it was not me; my friends did that.

The picture below was taken about 50 years ago on the Enoshima electric rail (famous for its proximity to houses). The place is very close to where Kurosawa shot "High & Low."

I will become a patissier, God willing.
