Excellent lyrics set to the tune of 'Blurred Lines' by Robin Thicke.

William Huskisson MP (Member of Parliament) was the first person to be killed by a train while crossing the tracks, in 1830.  Many more have died in the same way since then.  Don't take a chance: stop, look, listen.

"Level crossings are safe, unless they are used in an unsafe manner."  Discuss.

And now for this excellent piece of signage courtesy of a friends Facebook... I think it is meant to say: No Dogs, Skateboarding, Alcohol or Smoking... Of course if one looks at this with their Autistic Literal head on... I would love to see this happen rather than enforce it's banning Grin

The picture is a little small and blurry, but in the event of using Exit A, arm must be detached from body prior to operating inflatable slide.
