Children and teenagers are often not aware of the dangers present in the railway environment, such as electrification, or of the consequences and risks from antisocial behaviour and vandalism
Working with train operators, British Transport Police and education experts, Lucid produced three comprehensive teaching packs that include hard-hitting video, lesson plans and assembly ideas.
- A Good Journey is a learning pack that covers all aspects of keeping safe on the railway and respecting staff and fellow passengers.
- Trespass & Vandalism looks at the dangers and consequences of the some of the most common types of railway crime committed by teenagers.
- The Thrill Is Gone is powerful short film that highlights the dangers of spraying graffiti on the railway.
The teaching packs are available online at trackoff.org and on DVD, along with a range of previously produced teaching resources. The production is part of Lucid’s contract with RSSB to manage the Trackoff website services.
In March 2010, the Youth Work Now magazine named the Trackoff Resources DVD as one of the best six educational films available.
