I have a suggestion that isn't as exotic as MP3, TMCC, smartphone connections, etc.
How about creating a circuit that, when activated by a train entering an insulated rail section, causes two separate leads to be energized alternately, for a duration that would follow the other timing settings you've proposed above? The application I have in mind is causing the lights on an Lionel Postwar 154 Highway Signal to flash alternately.
If you can provide a device which eliminates the use of the wretched 154C contactor, and replaces it with a simple insulated rail trigger, I and a lot of other Postwar guys would beat a path to your door.
Thanks for listening.

Custom Signals had a nice circuit board to do that function. It could be triggered from either direction. It had the slow on/off blink function for either LEDs or the 154 crossing signal. It also did doubletrack crossings and for the really demanding customers like club layouts had a 3 block operation for each track.
Thanks for this, but here's the first sentence from Custom Signals' website:
It has been six months since the “doors” at Custom Signals closed.
I appreciate the tip, but it's sometimes tough doing business in our market....
