This broadcast featured Inspector Becky Warren from the British Transport Police, who held a live read of the new Thomas the Tank Engine book, Stay Safe with Thomas.
Network Rail has teamed up with the world’s most famous blue engine and pre-school favourite to help young children learn how to be safe when using the railway.
In the Stay Safe with Thomas story book, the mischievous Thomas has fun on the railway over being safe, putting himself and his friends in harm’s way.
He learns valuable lessons on the dangers of not stopping at a level crossing when the red light shows, leaving gates open to allow animals on to the tracks and standing too close to the edge of a platform.
Network Rail and British Transport Police (BTP) hope the story book will encourage parents to discuss rail safety with their young children in the same manner they teach them about other dangers they may encounter when out and about.
It is the first time Network Rail has partnered with children’s entertainment company Mattel and the first time Mattel has published a Thomas the Tank Engine TM book with a rail safety theme.
This broadcast is suitable for Key Stage 1.
