Rail transportation is controlled by way of "signal" lights.  There are various forms of signal lights:  Those that indicate messages to the train operator such as whether or not the line ahead is free of obstruction, etc., and those that prevent automobiles from driving across rail tracks when a train is approaching.  A switch on the rail line will trigger a set of lights to begin flashing and a crossing bar to be lowered.  This indicates to cars that a train is approaching and it is dangerous to cross the tracks.  When the train has passed, the lights stop flashing and the bar is raised indicating a safe crossing may now proceed.  The images below are signal lights meant to give direction to automobiles crossing rail lines.

Mules

At the Panama Canal, ships are pulled through the locks using locomotives that run on tracks called "mules".  The Canal has many specially trained workers and canal pilots that steer ships through the waterway.  When a ship enters the Canal, workers called Line Handlers attach steel mooring cables to the ship.  These are in turn attached to the mules - the electric train locomotives. The mules are what pull the ship through the locks and hold it steady while each lock fills with water.
