Bishop Line Community Rail Partnership brought together the rail industry to inspire 180 students from primary schools in Bishop Auckland, Shildon and Darlington and prepare them for safe, independent train travel.  

Taking place at Locomotion, Shildon the event aimed to tackle the growing problem of trespass on the railway through safety-based activities.  

Year six students enjoyed a carousel of activities delivered by railway professionals covering rail safety, journey planning, mental well-being and driver experience. They heard first-hand what it’s like to work in the rail industry from drivers, staff in customer services, those behind the scenes in roles like train performance plus they met community rail representatives who help connect the railways to the communities they serve.  

Sessions were delivered by CrossCountry, British Transport Police, Network Rail, Northern and The Railway Children and the event was supported by, Community Rail Network, ISS, LNER, Locomotion, Shildon Station Adopters, TransPennine Express, Tyne Valley Community Rail Partnership and Weardale Railway.
