How slow must that download speed be, if you can't get the video? Mine is twice as slow as the mobile connection on my phone () but still manages the video.

10 mbps, and it needs around 25 mbps to see the video on 4k properly (without stops to cache the video).

Slightly out of shot, but you get the picture of such a level crossing close to a station, at this one below showing Bicutan station in the Philippines.

Why is the train so slow here?

When the trains always pass this crossing with such a speed, the safety measures like the red lights seem actually to be not really necessary.

With SUCH a speed the train can stop almost immediately.

Anyway, a big plus for the local police - because breaking this law can be really dangerous.

In Europe (at least in Poland), the drivers are not obliged to stop at the crossings with spurs and sidings. It's the duty of the train crew to secure its crossing the road.

In such cases, there is only such a sign:





The cyclists are just crossing the siding. By the way, there is also a proper railway crossing ahead of them.

Siding crossing sometimes have the St. Andrew crosses: https://goo.gl/maps/hrwLKtzNJdP2 (here you can see the standard sign, move a little bit forward) - although it's rather infrequent.

Although... rarely, but siding crossings with barriers and traffic lights also exist in Poland: https://goo.gl/maps/i3pJeo7urjz
