Network Rail has announced that three boys were spotted taking photos at a level crossing in March this week, on the Ely to Peterborough line.
As can be seen, the boys are oblivious to the dangers as they set up a tripod to take photos on the tracks.
Passenger services are still running on this line, along with freight trains running to the ports in the Anglia region.
Parents and carers are now being urged to tell children to ‘keep off the tracks’ now schools are closed.
More than 1,800 trespass incidents occurred on Anglia’s rail network last year.
What did the officials say?
Becky Crocker, Network Rail’s community safety manager for Anglia, said:
“There are so many dangers on the railway, so it’s truly shocking to see these young boys risking their lives like this for a photo. This is a busy line and we are running more freight services to transport goods around the country right now.
“I urge all parents to please talk to your children, access our free school railway safety lessons and help us to help protect young people. Taking risks on and around the railway nearly always results in horrendous consequences for everyone.”
