The #YouvsTrain themed sessions were delivered at Oasis Academy Media City, Salford on Friday 23rd August 2019. There were two sessions that were delivered to a total of 32 young people aged from 8 to 16.

All the participants had opportunities to try out two games that pushed the young people to think about the dangers of being on the tracks. The themes covered related to:

  • The facts and dangers around trains,
  • The overhead cables
  • The third rail.

Most of the young people were surprised with the key facts and messages and were interested to know more. Some of their key surprises were the weight and stopping distance of the train, the voltage of the overhead cable and that there were three three lines on some tracks.
