I love the horn! Sounds like a full size locomotive train rather than two EMU rail cars lol.

It makes me wonder at exactly what intensity of service would warrant the cost of grade separation. Generally I'd say that if the service headways are a train every 10 or fewer minutes for a significant part of the day (like more than an hour or two during rush hour) then grade separation is worth it. But it also depends on the amount of traffic on the road and the amount of ridership on the rail line. The more traffic that uses the road and/or the more riders that use the rail line, the more it's worth the investment in grade separation. On a busy 4 lane or wider arterial road, there would be high need for separation even if the rail line had fairly low service frequency.

72km/h is very slow , hopefully they'll increase that to 160km/h...
