Rail Safety Question: How do the gate arms at highway-rail crossings know when to come down?

A: “Track circuitry,” or the activation of electronic components of trains and tracks such as coils, resistors, and relays, are set to activate the crossing warning devices at the posted track speed at the approach of the crossing. ~Matthew W., Quality Assurance Coordinator, NMRX

Albuquerque buses are running, Amtrak is running. Why isn't Rail Runner running? All you need is alternate seating, mandatory masks, and reservations. Priority to pass holders, and I'm not one. It can be done safely!
Why have all the trains been running 5 to 10 minutes late this week?
I ride the train often and rode it tonight. The schedule says the train leaves the Santa Fe Depot on Sundays at 8:10pm. The train very clearly left at 8:09, according to my Android phone, which is charged, and using a data plan, so I trust the time. After we started moving, the engine driver sent a message over the intercom telling us to make sure we get on our train two minutes before scheduled departure. Sure I get it, be early for the train. But no train should ever leave earlier than scheduled. I mentioned it to the gentleman taking the tickets, and he said "the train runs on satellite time so it might be different from your clock". My clock is a smartphone, which is connected to an NIST server, which is provides the official US time. Most cell phones get their time from this. If the train does not use this official time, it is not synced with the clocks on smartphones and we potentially have a serious problem.
I wouldn't recomend because I was treated unfairly for being loud or BIPOLAR and I was told to leave by TICKET AGENT(JOHN) and told to leave in which case I did as I was with SECURITY. After I left thou,I was followed and held beat up,thats after I told them in the train that I had BIPOLAR ISSUES AND WAS TAKING MADICATION FOR HEARING VOICES(BUSH). The other incident was with(JOSE) SECURITY last night who said to me where you going. I said Albaqueque, "NO he said,your going to Montano,and your getting out here TURKEY. I just wish ATTY.RON BELL had taken my case against THE TRAIN cause A SUFFER NOW FROM A HERNIATED DISK AND HYPEREXTENDED SHOULDER.They have one restroom so,and no restrooms and waterfountains so be sure to use the bathroom at home and no bathrooms or waterfountains in their facilities.President Trump says they have it BAD IN MEXICO WELL I'VE BEEN IN TRAINS AND BUSES AND BELIEVE ME THEIR COMTORABLE THEN IN THEN IN NEW MEXICO.
My son took this picture on October 3rd in Los Lunas! 😊
Although I am a very private person I want to post this publicly so everyone who wants to know the answer can read it. I am surprised that none of your passengers complained that both this Express and the 208 don't have service with their vehicles arriving close to the departure and for that matter the arrival times of the Amtrak train in ABQ. It makes no sense a'tall.
