Crossing Gate
The 1978 and Life-Like catalog lists the Woodberry Crossing Gate Action Accessory as a new release and it carries stock number 08709.  The 1979 Life-Like catalog price list gives $7 as this item's retail and it is still listed with the same name and stock number.  
For 1980, Life-Like states this item receives new packaging and it also has a different stock number 08209.  The Woodberry name remains for 1980, but 1981 has the name as Operating Crossing Gate with the second, 08209, stock number. 
The base and crossing gate look very much like that of the similar TYCO accessory.  TYCO's address was also Woodbury Heights, New Jersey at one time; look at the name of this Life-Like accessory.  Below is the image Life-Like provided for this item in the 1978 catalog.  You'll note that it appears to be a TYCO Crossing Gate and not representative of what Life-Like would actually offer.

As mentioned above, the TYCO Operating Crossing Gate appears to be very similar to the Life-Like offering.  For more information regarding the TYCO item, you may click on the image below...
