Hmm, didn't see electrification colums anywhere, and the train looks like it's in the Regional railways livery...Jonno2055 said:By the looks a couple of Essex chavs seeing as that looks like a great Eastern unit. Could be a 315.
****ing amazing, the blatency of these people realy does P I S S me of.Royalscot said:Trespassers tend to be middle aged men that are talking the dog for a quick walk and are using the railway as a shortcut. If they're challenged they tend to come out will some BS about 'I've done it for years'.
The most blatant trespass incident I have know of is a certain signal box received a letter from a leader of a fox hunt, instructing the signalman on duty on one Saturday afternoon to 'caution all trains for the afternoon because we might just have to cross the railway'. BTW the service was on average one train every five minutes on both lines, so that's some delay. I don't know what happened with that one, but I saw the letter, it's quite true.
I believe the reason the DLR can be ATO is that there are no foot crossings or level crossings and emg buttons on the platform.Dennis said:

It depends on the system in use. If a member of staff was present at the front of the train (as is always the case on the Central & Victoria lines, and sometimes the DLR) the operator would apply the emergency brake by whatever method is necessary on the train concerned. If there was no crew member present at the front of the train (as is sometimes the case on the DLR), the train would simply run over the trespasser/jumper/etc, unless someone managed to hit the emergency stop plunger on the platform in time.Dennis said:
