The Rail, Maritime and Transport Union has welcomed the introduction of a secondary warning system for rail workers but says it has come too late.
Network Rail says a secondary protection system to protect track workers has been trialled and is due to be introduced in June. The company also says it's fitted a "failsafe" braking system in the type of vehicles involved in the Tebay accident and made improvements to wagons.
Relatives, friends and colleagues of four railway workers killed in a rail accident near Tebay in 2004 have gathered to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the disaster.
The four men - three from Lancashire, one from Cumbria - were working on the West Coast Mainline, when they were hit by a runaway wagon.
A service is being held to mark the tenth anniversary of the Tebay rail disaster. Four workers died when they were hit by a runaway maintenance trolley as they worked on the track in 2004.

Commemorations are due to take place to mark the anniversary of the Tebay tragedy.
