Crossing Gates of this sort once protected busy road crossings throughout the United States. They were usually operated by a full time crossing tender, a man or woman that worked out of a small "crossing shanty" that offered some protection from the elements. The gates were cranked down whenever a train approached the crossing. This particular gate, which carries a patent date of 1876, once served a crossing on the Maine Central Railroad. Modern electronic automatic crossing gates have replaced the old manual gate with its human operator.
