I actually have to diagree with Mad Mac said that Network Rail has only one AOCL/AOCR level crossing left. In the highlands of Scotland there are 2 AOCL level crossings left. One in Dingwall (Craig Road) and the other on a road that joins Delny to the main road. (A9) I will send a post of 2 weblinks. One a youtube link of the AOCL in Dingwall and the other of a picture of the Delny AOCL.

Here is the link for the youtube video:

Mad Mac was quite correct. Rosarie is the only remaining AOCR. The others you mention are AOCLs, a different animal altogether but now becoming rare, thankfully.

Delurking after a prolonged absence. I'm not convinced it is helpful to think of Forestry Crossing on the Talyllyn as an AOCR, though clearly it is a hybrid of some sort. Like an AOCL, authority for trains to cross the road is conveyed by driver's warning lights. Yes, it has a measure of fault reporting back to Abergynolwyn block post in addition to the DWL - and, indeed, the ability to inhibit operation of the crossing from Abergynolwyn when the staff is on its rest (shades of an AOCD, though not the same :-)) but I still think it's more helpful to think of it as some sort of "enhanced AOCL" rather than an AOCR.

(Actually, on searching I find we had more-or-less this same discussion some years ago: http://forum.signalbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=933)
