Run by EFL Trust and Network Rail, the campaign aims to stop incidents on train tracks

Norwich City’s Community Sports Foundation is backing the EFL Trust and Network Rail campaign ‘You Vs Train’, which aims to stop young people venturing onto train tracks.

Figures published earlier in 2019 by Network Rail revealed police have recorded more than 250 incidents a week of people messing about on the railway – taking short-cuts, capturing photos and even ‘train surfing’ – sometimes with tragic consequences.

Young people (under 18s) make up one of the largest categories, responsible for a third of all cases.

Allan Spence, head of passenger and public safety at Network Rail, said: “Children and adults alike continue to risk their lives by going onto the track and it has to stop. Every day we see over three dozen incidents and each one could be a potential catastrophe leading to life-changing injuries or even death.”
