Sorry for the lack of updates, I’ve been fairly busy with Uni work [don’t go into shock, you’ll miss the rest of the post]
Whilst waiting for inspiration, I’ve spent a lot of time on Youtube watching a lot of movies/films and stuff.
It runs on water [50 minute video, from 1995]
On a serious note, railway level crossings; at Chasewater we’ve a number of pedestrian crossings, but one real level crossing at Chasewater Heaths.
It’s thankfully not a heavily used crossing, its to allow the emergency services to get onto the heathland, but its a heavily used pedestrian crossing.
This is notorious for people;
1: Crossing in front of trains,
2: Ignoring the approaching train and crossing,
3: Standing in the middle of the tracks taking pictures,
4: Climbing over the gates,
and the best
5: opening the road gates without coming to check with us if theres a train coming.
So, I’ve been trying to put together a collection of films to show the idiots what would happen, and have found these;
What you want to happen when ignoring the crossing lights … [ignore the stupid intro and music]
But, go to India, and you can ignore these to your hearts content;
I’m not being over zealous with the safety push; I just really don’t want to have to watch someone get run over by a train or assist in the clear up.
Other than that, I’m all good :-)
