A Tasmanian coroner has raised concerns about complacency about the dangers of railway crossings and is urging rail authorities to install clearer signs.

Coroner Don Jones investigated the death of Robert John Joblin in May last year at WiImores Lane, Longford.

The 68-year-old Miena man died from shock after a colliding with a train.

An investigation into his death has concluded the crash was an accident and likely to have resulted from complacency.

Coroner Don Jones wants clearer signs and an education program about the dangers of railway crossings.

He urged TasRail to run a campaign which highlights the risks.

Coroner Jones said drivers had become complacent and there were too many incidents involving railway crossings in Tasmania.
