Boy, they are pretty nasty. Those poor children :cry:

But hopefully they are graphic enough to make people be more aware of the dangers of level crossings.

Were these not on Uk.Railways a few months back? Pretty shocking though, something similar needs to be done in the UK, maybe along the lines of the Road Safety adverts which are on at all hours of the day, but the Rail Safety ones are only on at 3am on Friday the 29th of Febuary.

Thats not graphic, i can tell you now people dont fade away when they are hit by a train at that speed, neither do cars.
Graphic is when someone who has been there describes how many bits and their favourite hidy holes underneath the train

The Road Safety ones here are similar. Has anyone seen the recently released one? There are a gang of kids messing about with a camera phone recording themselves, then one goes to cross the road and the next moment he's hit by a car, then all the kids are screaming and the camera is dropped. Horrible, but hopefully they will get the point across.

We recently seen a trackoff video about Tyler, the chav who though he would race a HST from Nottingham to leicster on the outskirts of Leicster, regretably he didn't check what track the HST was on and it whamed straight into him from behind. It anoys me that these vandals are depicted as "so good people" yet if they were, what were they doing on the tracks.

I agree some sort of rail safety video is needed for the public.

The trackoff videos are good but not brilliant in my opinion, as they use actors and often dont depict the full situation of when an incident happened.
I had to resit my PTS when i joined NR and to the unintitiated, it gives the impression that you'd be lucky to last 4 weeks on the railway before being hit by a train or electrocuted by 3rd rail or OHLE
