There is at least one standard-gauge crossing 'on the level' near Newark, where the East Coast main line is crossed by the line from Nottingham to Lincoln.

There is also a replacement crossing installed earlier this year at Portmadoc, where the narrow-gauge Welsh Highland Railway is being rebuilt and crosses the standard-gauge line between Pwllheli and Dovey Junction. The original was removed after the WHR closed down many years ago.

But such crossings are not popular on the prototype because of the mutual interference between the two lines; hence the use of fly-overs or under-passes.
