Overlap at a level crossing was virtually non existant, interlocking of gates and signalling is a fairly new feature as well. Merrion was routinely struck by trains back in the steam era.

Reality is due to the commercial need to maintain a 15 minute DART interval it won't be of any help to fly through the level crossings as the best case is a 8 minute shorter journey than a DART service
