    Is this video of last weekends "Industrious Trader" taken "wrong side of the fence" ( from about 2 mins in)?

    Sure looks like it to me, but I don't know the Coventry area.

    I've just looked at his profile, seems he is a bobby for notwork rail at Coundon road box which after looking on streetmap, is in the general area. So probably has a valid PTS etc.

    Re: Railway Video's on Youtube

    Yes I've been in touch with him and he is a Signalman with PTS...
     
  8. Re: Railway Video's on Youtube

    Thats okay, but I thought the ruling was that you use your PTS ONLY when actually working?

    Maybe he was working.......

    Re: Railway Video's on Youtube

    Yes I thought that was the rule as well, but I suppose having the PTS at least means he has the authority to be there. :-k
     
  10. Re: Railway Video's on Youtube

    I don't think thats the case Ralph, although there may be others that can quote the rulebook.

    For instance, although loco support crews all have a PTS, you are not allowed lineside other than when you are usefully engaged with the locomotive on the mainline. I presume this also applies to employees on the railway, that being that their PTS is only for use during their rostered hours.

    Qoute from Network Rail 'you and the Sentinel Scheme'
    'If you are going on or near the line you must have a valid Sentinel track safety card with you. Your card is only valid if your PTS and medical cerification are in date, you have a sponsor and you are working for them.'

    Re: Railway Video's on Youtube

    Well i went to Northallerton and you literally couldn't move on the platform for the amount of people, and i'd urge people to start talking notice of the signs, "Stand Well Back behind the Yellow lines" i saw people standing next to the platform edge when the NXEC trains are coming along, even i got scared and i was back by the fence, only takes a person to loose their balance and their gone.
    Also Flash photography again, major factor tonight more so with trains doing 100mph or above.

    Anyway, fantastic sight! And that Chime whistle is fantastic, had it blasting for ages on the approach

    Video Now online
