RED 22 - Irregular Working and Communications

This RED looks at level crossings. One of the barriers at a level crossing fails to rise confusing motorists as to when it is safe to cross . Poor communications between the signaller and the mobile operations manager lead to a misunderstanding and a fast train nearly collides 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.
