Not in use anymore, though once it was the site of a rare fighter-on-train accident! It was one of a kind sort of crash. A jet figher ramming into a train.
Yes that was indeed one of its kind but the main hazard was when pilots were coming in to land, they had strict instructions to avoid touching down on the tracks after an F-6 burst its tyres so touch down was always either before or after the crossing patch.

Even triggered an F-6 to fire a Sidewinder when it went over it on the ground.
