Do Not Trespass

10/04/2020 (2 years ago)   General News

Despite the railway being shut, we find it necessary to remind members of the public that trespassing on the railway is not permitted. 

It is dangerous, illegal and can lead to serious injury or in some cases death.

Whilst we are not running public train services, our staff continue to inspect the railway, and this means trains are being run across our entire network. These trains do not run to a set schedule. 

The video below shows the perils of trespassing on a railway. Warning the contents may upset some viewers.

Whilst we may operate steam trains and heritage diesels, like the trains depicted on this video they do not slow down like a car and can appear out of nowhere. Further information can be found at

Do not take risks. Do not trespass.
