Athearn, in its early days, also offered a crossing gate, but this was unique for it featured dual gates and you would set the track in the piece yourself (you'd still need to provide the grade, though.
First offered in 1968 and was still available until the end of Tyco's model railroad line in 1993. I have one of these, but it's kind of a pain to work with, so I am definitely not using it on my layout. Since AHM was also a big competitor with Tyco and Bachmann during the 1970s, it was obvious they'd come up with their own version.
Usually these crossings signals are good for nostalgia, but you probably won't find them on many layouts today.

This typically wouldn't be effective, and on some types the gate would keep going up and down as the train passes.
In the original version shown here, you would hook up the small tab that connects to the gate with a small rod underneath the base.
The lights would alternate pretty fast, and the bell didn't sound that authentic, but it was still actually pretty cool.
Some time in the 2000s, Bachmann repainted the base to have a more green ground, and the gates getting the more modern red-and-white color. However with today's technology, you could modify one of these by motorizing the gate(s) and adding flashers into the signal(s) and possibly a bell sound. The popularity of our HO version of this model inspired us to offer this locomotive to N scale modelers.
After all, its origins date back to the 1930s and it showcases the New England waterfront area in a traditional way while maintaining the hustle and bustle of a city view, a mountain mining area and scenes of the rural Canadian countryside. The great benefit is that a modular train layout can be dismantled and reassembled if you decide to shift property.

It also used an Atlas 9" straight brass track section that could be removed, but in the mid-1970s it was replaced with a permanently-attached track section, again brass until 1978, when Tyco switched to steel. My version's lights don't work (maybe they need to be rewired or something), but the bell works pretty well. However, the lights would not actually flash; when a train passes over both lights would come on and stay on as long as power is sent to them.

The bell is housed inside that small shack, and dings REALLY REALLY fast while the lights both strobe on and off (no alternating effect). Later in its life, a version with crossbucks was included (the same kind similar to Tyco's stand-along crossbucks), and Model Power also rebranded this version for some time.
When it was first offered, it seemed suspiciously similar to Tyco's accessory; the base and the signal were identical, but with different colors, and more decorative features added. Constructing a modular train layout can save you from building a brand new layout all over again.

The bell is pressure-operated, hence it being wind-up, and the lights are powered by the tracks.
Pressure sensors were also included so the train could trigger the signals before lowering the gates. I imagine this was simply because Life-Like probably had their crossing gate originally made by the same Hong Kong-based company that made Tyco's crossing gates.
