TasRail are urging Tasmanians to be safe around trains after Tasmania Police attended two incidents.
A member of the public spotted two people wearing black beanies running on top of cement train wagons that were heading into Devonport around 4pm on Monday.
TasRail communications manager Sarah Hirst said the train, the yard and the roadside were check by police but nothing was found.
“TasRail is appalled that members of the public continue to put themselves and the driver at risk through irresponsible behaviour,” Ms Hirst said.
Ms Hirst said a car also collided with a wagon on Deviation Road near Westbury but no one was injured.
“It is not hard to imagine who would come off second best between car or pedestrian and a train,” she said.
She said was illegal to trespass onto the rail corridor and urged people to call police or TasRail on 1300tasrail if they saw trespassers.
