Now the school holidays are here (again!), it's time to make sure your children are safe when they're out playing. Network Rail has launched a campaign to show the terrible risks of playing on or near railway tracks. A shocking, 2-minute video shows horrific injuries suffered by children who trespassed on railway tracks or tried to interfere with electrical equipment like overhead power lines or electric rails.
RAIL magazine has a copy of the video. Every parent should see it and should teach their children about the dangers of messing with the railway. It can be more dangerous than playing in the street. Have you told your children?
