Something I saw yesterday

I was driving along a street which crossed railway lines in some meters, and I saw a weird sign. I was so stunned that I drove back to fetch a camera.

This is the street, at the right side are the railway lines. The sign is where the red arrow is.
HET neutral klein mit Pfeil

The red arrow points to this sign:
HET1 Schild neutral klein

Well, I *had* to look it up. HET means an auxiliary power-on button to activate a railway gate (HilfsEinschaltTaste).

I am thinking about making an icon of it. Maybe crisscrossed in red ;-).

Really would make a nice icon! Never seen this before, either.

It probably exists for decades ;-).

I think everyone drives fast and keeps their eyes on the street, so most people overlook it. I was driving rather slowly because I wanted to turn left in the curve (Umpf. dict.cc doesn't give me the English word for "abbiegen in einer abknickenden Vorfahrt")
