Network Rail and the British Transport Police are hosting a railway safety awareness stand at the Royal Norfolk Show. On Wednesday 30 June and Thursday 1 July, children will be challenged to highlight the dangers on a mock-up railway. PC Chris Manders, BTP said:  “Railway crime has been steadily reducing in the Norfolk area – but we can’t afford to be complacent.  Education is the key to combating railway crime.  Our stand looks at the dangers the railway can pose and in a safe environment, shows children why they must stay away from the railway.” Once children have spotted the dangers, they will be invited to enter a competition to win family days out to London.

About Network Rail

We own, operate and develop Britain's railway infrastructure; that's 20,000 miles of track, 30,000 bridges, tunnels and viaducts and the thousands of signals, level crossings and stations. We run 20 of the UK's largest stations while all the others, over 2,500, are run by the country's train operating companies.

Usually, there are almost five million journeys made in the UK and over 600 freight trains run on the network. People depend on Britain's railway for their daily commute, to visit friends and loved ones and to get them home safe every day. Our role is to deliver a safe and reliable railway, so we carefully manage and deliver thousands of projects every year that form part of the multi-billion pound Railway Upgrade Plan, to grow and expand the nation's railway network to respond to the tremendous growth and demand the railway has experienced - a doubling of passenger journeys over the past 20 years.
