RED 22 - Irregular Working and Communications

The first reconstruction portrays an extremely near miss on a level crossing which could distress train drivers who have been involved in a similar incident.  One of the barriers failed to rise, and confused early-morning motorists were crossing the track against the lights. Poor safety critical communications between the Signaller and the MOM led to a misunderstanding about when the next train was due, and a fast train nearly collided with road traffic on the crossing.

The second reconstruction sees the driver of an engineering train waiting to enter the possession. He is instructed by the PICOP to pass the protecting signal at danger and does so although the signaller has given no such authority.
