Trespassing on rail network 'not a risk worth taking'

Too many people think they would hear a train in time to move clear - tragically we know this isn't the case.

The sound of a train approaching is much quieter than you would imagine with the wheels pushing noise out sidewards rather than forwards and distorting what you hear.

Trespass is just not a risk worth taking and so we hope that Wretch and George can help get across this message and reduce the number of incidents we see each year.
