You vs Train – More Than A Campaign

28 July 2020
In partnership with Network Rail, British Transport Police (BTP) and StreetGames, the EFL Trust is working with local communities to help tackle increasing numbers of railway risk takers.

The ‘You vs. Train’ campaign was launched in 2018 by the rail industry and British Transport Police and saw incidents involving children reduce by 12 per cent. But this vulnerable group continue to be a high risk.

Figures reveal over 250 incidents a week have been recorded by people taking risks on the railway – taking short-cuts, capturing photos and even ‘train surfing’ – sometimes with tragic consequences. Young people (under 18s) make up one of the largest categories, responsible for a third of all cases.

All EFL Clubs are involved in the campaign with activity ranging from social media posts to player messages. Clubs who are within the trespass incident hot spot will run workshops in their local communities.

During the summer holidays, everyone at Hull City and the Tigers Trust want our fans, friends and families to stay safe by staying off the tracks. Everyone loses when you step on the track.
