If you are talking 00, Wills do a kit.

AFAIK there are no UK prototype half or full barrier ready to use motorised level crossing sets available.
You can use the Heathcote Electronics servo control kit to operate the Peco half barrier set. http://www.heathcote-electronics.co.uk/uk-barrier-crossing.html
Block Signalling produce several kits too. Example... http://www.blocksignalling.co.uk/index.php/level-crossing-controller-for-gates-barriers-lcs5

Busch do the flashing lights, though you may have to modify them for UK use.
