I did not find any information after doing a search of the forum and the internet... I am interested in knowing how to slow down the gates arms lowering on the Maerklin 8992 Z scale crossing. I've seen videos on YouTube and on one of the videos the arms went down slowly/realistically. Some type of modification was done. It's my understanding that the gates come down via solenoids rather than geared motors (which would be easier to "fix"). Is there some type of circuit that slowly increase the voltage to the solenoids to make operation more realistic? If I am not able to do that I think I would prefer to have just the Busch crossing signal lights rather than the gates (Noch Cortina layout).

Hi
Usually this is made by replacing the solenoids with servo motors
IMO little can be done using the solenoids

Merci Jean. That certainly makes sense now that you mention it. A lot of fine control/adjustment should be available with that method.
