other there is nothing no crossing:barrier or crossing:light

I tried to remember where I have seen a similar level crossings in
Germany. Here are two examples from East Germany where I have seen
Blankenfelde (Kreis Teltow-Fläming):
Mapillary image available there but the website requires WebGL.
In Blankenfelde, a road is crossing the tracks and a footpath from the
train platform to the road has its own light and barrier.
Please note that crossing lights are often integrated in the saltires at
old level crossings in East Germany.
Some Mapillary image is available there.
A track (or service road to the signal box) has its own barriers and
light. One of the two railway lines is out of service but this does not
I visited both crossings three years ago (taking a video out of the
train) but I only added the railway=level_crossing nodes and its
sub-tags. I did not mind to to road-related micromapping. :-)
I think that level crossing tags (crossing:*=*, railway=level_crossing)
should always go to the track, not to the location where the lights and
barriers are located. This makes it easier to count level crossings with
a specific type of protection (e.g. no barriers vs. no barriers and no
lights vs. only lights vs. …) and to do analyses from the train drivers
perspective which crossings are ahead.
If you want to map the lights and barriers individually, you should look
how individual traffic signs are mapped and invent your own tagging
schema for crossing lights and barriers. What about
traffic_sign:barrier:light=full/half/double_half/no (in this case half
