.There was no camera footage of this insident only statment from the signal man.also i still feel that no offence was commited on my behalf because there was no red light or warning siren given to me on aproaching the crossing do i have a case to fight.

Normally a level crossing has barriers and a sign with flashing and red lighting?
I have never seen one without?
