The RAIB (Rail Accident Investigation Branch) has released its bulletin regarding the serious injury of a guard on the Foxfield Light Railway, 24 October 2010.

Quote
At around 14:15 hrs on 24 October 2010 the guard of a demonstration freight train operating at Foxfield Colliery yard on the Foxfield Light Railway attempted to board the brake van of a slowly moving train.  He slipped from the foot step and was dragged a few metres before releasing his hold on a handrail and falling.  He suffered a fractured and dislocated shoulder.

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.
