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.

Failed to park between the lines. Expect a PCN from APCoA in the post.

Not that I've seen... However there were trials in 2011 for a new DMU Engine with improved brake horse power... Sadly the trials were withdrawn due to insufficient water points between Wrexham and Canterbury

Don't DOO it, keep the guard (but it probably wouldn't be a bad idea if the driver unlocked the doors on arrival at calling points).

From the BBC - taking your guide horse on the train.

Quote
A miniature horse which helps visually-impaired people has trained on the Tyne & Wear Metro to help his new owner.

Digby, the UK's first ever guide horse, has to be comfortable with trains and stations' surroundings as he'll be riding the London Underground regularly.

One has to wonder at the "assistance dogs only" signs you see in places ... and wonder if the assistance horse will be allowed.   Is the law permitting guide dogs to go virtually anywhere limited to dogs, or does it include horses?

The legislation, the Equality Act 2010, only refers to assistance dogs.

However, it could be possible to bring a case under the act for general discrimination if a disabled person and their assistance horse were denied access to a business or service.

There are only a few assistance horses in the UK at present but there are already people advocating a change in the wording of the act, from 'dog' to 'animal'.

Another article about Digby:

www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/02/06/first-ever-guide-horse-trained-help-blind-journalist

If small horses are allowed in hospitals then I don't think there's any justifiable reason to deny them access to businesses and services. Yes, I've seen a small horse in a hospital. When my stepfather was in Yeovil District Hospital over Christmas 2017 he was visited by a Shetland pony!
