The tag crossing:activation=* specifies how the barriers and alerts of a railway crossing are activated.

How to map

Use the tag on a node node. The node should be shared between the highway and railway.

Two sources can be worked together crossing:activation=automatic, crossing:activation=local crossing:activation=automatic,local to show where multiple activations are required to set activate the crossing.

Possible tagging mistakes

If you know places with this tag, verify if it could be tagged with another tag.
Automated edits are strongly discouraged unless you really know what you are doing!
