(2) Whether there is evidence that defendants' use of the crossing interfered with the railroad's use of its property.

(3) Whether the railroad purchased its property with notice of defendants' allegedly adverse 75-year use of the crossing.

(4) Whether use of a railroad crossing by vehicles is fundamentally different in character from common use of a road, such that it gives rise to a presumption of adversity or constitutes evidence of adversity.
