I think a few have been targeted over the weeks since West Ealing stabling point was opened.  Not sure what they have in terms of CCTV and security, but most people I spoke to who had heard about the new sidings said they expected it to be a problem at that location.

Basically you can get onto the tracks easily from the Plasser level crossing on the Greenford line.

Obvious it was going to happen. Such a stupid location to stable trains.  Don't know about CCTV but I believe there's a security guard employed at the site, goes by the name Stevie Wonder!!

I'm not surprised if NR/GWR are now providing them with flood lighting! They'll be supplying coffee Red Bull next! Shocked Grin

Just drop the OLE on the adjacent siding by a couple of metres overnight. That'll save on graffiti and Red Bull.

... or send a couple of BTP officers out there, with tasers ...  Tongue

William Huskisson MP 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.

Tired, and not very funny cliché. When did you last see a bobby on duty with a coffee in one hand and doughnut in the other?  Roll Eyes

Lover of trains and all things rail related. That love and enjoyment has been severely dented in recent years by FGW/GWR.

You should know by now that TG's shots are mostly of the cheap variety.
