I don't have or use the "popular map application" and doubt that I will. I have a GPS, state gazettes and state maps. But I thought this might be of interest for those who do use it. Unless it works on the desktop and I can print out crossings for photos?

Here's the other one: http://www.railwayage.com/index.php/safety/fra-launches-grade-crossing-iphone-ipad-app.html

The Federal Railroad Administration has launched Rail Crossing Locator, a free iOS smartphone mobile application for iPhones and iPads that provides easy access to safety information about the nations more than 200,000 highway-rail grade crossings.
