Old Bob's Crossing?

The line to the Brocken emerges briefly from the forest above Schierke to cross the Alte Bobbahn, nothing to do with Old Bob but a disused bobsleigh run. In its time it was one of the fastest with speeds of up to 100km/h recorded. What did hurtling bobsleighers do if there was a train going over the crossing?

99.7240 approached the crossing with train 8927, the 13:39 from Drei Annen Hohne to Brocken, on 11 October 2015.
