They are required to use the horn at every crossing (in WA anyway)
even if the crossing has lights, bells and boom gates. People still
get run over.
In Victoria, train drivers are required to sound their horn at every road
and pedestrian crossing, this includes crossings where ther train line is
Behind me in my little village, there are seven crossings within hearing
range, luckily there are very few trains which use the line every day, and I
can guess the time of day by the train.
