Even on heritage/tourist railways trains are serious business. It's not a game and people can get hurt/killed.Over the last few years or so there have been a number of wrong side signal and level crossing failures.Red for Danger is a BRILLIANT read for anyone even remotely interested in Safe Working and should be mandatory for people doing safe working training in the industry.
How long before a train hits a bus?
I am beginning to wonder in certain areas whether some of our 'talent' exceeds our feet on the ground experience.
The old book Red for Danger should be compulsory reading for EVERYONE even remotely involved in rail.
I read it while I was doing safe working training and it was a real eye opener. Made me pay attention in class I can tell you!
While it's an old book it's message is still relevant.
Does anyone know of a newer work in the same vein?
