Request from GTR Southern Rail - please share with your contacts in your communities as a reminder not to trespass on the railway.
Network Rail has released a railway safety campaign video - You Vs Train - http://youvstrain.co.uk/
We recommend parents and care givers view this first before watching with the person they support to decide if they think it is appropriate.
Remember to tell young people:
- The railway is never switched off. Electricity powers the overhead cables and third rail 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
- Passenger services are not the only users of the rail network – freight trains run all through the day and night.
- Never anticipate that you know when the next train is due. Fewer passenger trains running on the rail network allows more freight services to operate during the day, transporting vital goods around the country. A freight train can travel at up to 100mph.
Thank you for your support in sharing this safety message.
