Trespassing

What is trespassing?

If you step on the railway track, the land next to the track, or any area near the railway that isn’t open to the public, you are trespassing. It is dangerous and illegal.

Trespassing includes picking up lost property from the tracks, crossing the tracks at any point other than at a level crossing, stepping off a level crossing onto an area where you shouldn’t be, and taking a walk down the side of the railway track.

Everyone loses when you step on the track. Do you really know the potential risks of trespassing? When you step on the track you face 25,000 volts of electricity, 400 tonnes of train, and the electrified third rail.
