Interesting videos and thank you for posting them.

The crossing is actually the LGB one and not the Playmobil one.

Great Videos.

Particularly love the PM Dandy cart!

Yes the LGB crossing follows a long line of weight operated crossings, but is a lot more reliable than my HO Life-Like one!

That's some smoke generator there. What have they used to generate that volume of "smoke"?

A rather primitive system:

The purple ones, taped into place. Doesn't last much longer than the video.
