Mandatory stop at level crossing (de: Zwangshalt am BÜ)
There are sometimes local requirements to stop a train in front of a level crossing. Train staff has to protect the train run against the individual traffic on the street.
The German words for this szenario are: "Halt mit Sicherung durch Zugpersonal".
We can introduce a stop attribute in the levelCrossing element with a boolean type.
Additionally the timetable may mark this level crossing with a "non-commercial" stop (ocp).
