Network Rail's New Initiative Highlights the Dangers of the Railway

You Vs. Train is a rail-industry initiative spearheaded by Network Rail and the British Transport Police aimed at teenagers across the UK.

For the campaign's central film, director Ben Lankester creates a thrilling, moving account of Tom Hubbard, a 16 year-old boy who received life-changing injuries when he trespassed on the railway.

This project marks the second occasion in a year that Progress and Pegasus have collaborated together. The first was Small Talk Saves Lives, a powerful campaign for Samaritans, directed by Matt Hopkins, aimed at reducing the number of suicides on the railway.
