I wanted to share this video with all you who wants to retrofit a stearing wheel with cruise control. Follow the steps and you should be able to DIY.

Railroad Crossing: Columbus Avenue, Anderson, IN. CSX Track 2
This is CSX track 2 through Anderson, IN. Crossing Columbus Avenue between
19th Street and Ohio Avenue (State Road 32). Track 1 and track 2 split up
through Anderson and come back together on either end of the city. Track 2
runs through downtown with several crossings. Track 1 runs through South
Anderson Yards. The traffic lights are tied in to the crossing
(pre-emption). During a trains presence, the lights at the crossing are on
steady red, not flashing, but the lights at the intersection flash red in
Video starts with pictures of the crossing.
Actual video starts at 2:05.
At 18:08 signal maintainer shown checking the crossing signals. Notice how
what he does affects the traffic lights, thus, confusing motorist into
running the red light after they stop flashing at the intersection. You'll
see a couple near-misses.
At 22:44 a storm knocked out power in the area. As a result, the crossing
signals went to back-up power. The signals come on when this happens.
