Trespassing

TRESPASSING

 IT IS AN OFFENCE TO TRESPASS ON ANY RAILWAY LAND.

 

THIS INCLUDES:

  • PAST  ‘NO PASSENGERS PAST THIS POINT’ SIGNS
  • LEVEL AND FOOT CROSSINGS WHEN THE GATES ARE CLOSED OR A TRAIN IS COMING
  • ANY LAND WITHIN THE BOUNDARY FENCE

 

IF YOU TRESPASS ON ANY RAILWAY LAND, YOU ARE NOT ONLY PUTTING YOURSELF AT RISK, BUT THE LIVES OF OTHER AROUND YOU

 WHEN A TRESPASS INCIDENT IS REPORTED, IT HAS TO BE INVESTIGATED BEFORE TRAINS CAN BE ALLOWED TO RUN AT FULL SPEED. THIS MEANS PUTTING OTHERS IN DANGER WHEN TRYING TO FIND THE CULPRIT.

 

RISKS TO YOU INCLUDE BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO:

  • WEILS DISEASE FROM RAT URINE
  • HUMAN WASTE
  • OVERHEAD LINES AND 3RD RAIL (ELECTRICITY CAN JUMP IN THE RIGHT CONDITIONS)
  • TRIPPING HAZARDS
  • HYPERDERMIC NEEDLES (THROWN FROM OVERBRIDGES)
  • MOVING PARTS ON POINTWORK
  • TRAINS THEMSELVES

 

A HUMAN LIFE IS NOT WORTH A PICTURE

DON’T RUN THE RISK

  1. Not just mainline, the amount of times I’ve seen people go past the “Do not not pass this sign” signs at the end of the platform at Winchcombe has been amazing. People claiming they thought it was only for authenticity – pah!

    If you want to be allowed to go lineside, either take the safety courses and pay for a pass, or become a volunteer and don an orange jacket (as I do, very handy for our steam gala standing just past the barrier so no heads in the way!) 😀
