People with heavy luggage and wearing high heels are among those to topple over while travelling on Birmingham New Street's escalators.
CCTV footage released by Network Rail as part of a new safety campaign shows people at the busy station taking a tumble.
The first clip shows a man struggling with his luggage fall backwards, and - apparently giving up on the situation - continues to travel upwards with his legs in the air.
A second clip shows another person trip up twice as they struggle to keep their footing.
Network Rail has stressed that neither of the people shown were injured.
