Staff from Heaton depot and Rescue pod were back at the Dales school. This time they were making a level crossing. The Dales school is working hard to promote railway safety, so it is important children understand the dangers of crossing a railway track. Thank you so much to Heaton Depot and Rescue pod for all the hard work.

We would like to thank Gary Barnes, Gary Roseby, Tom Joyce and Vicki Carr for the amazing work.

The team even managed to get the train’s tail lights working and patched up the leaking roof.

Kerry Peters, regional director at Northern, said: “Our team are proud to be able to support The Dales School and it is vital that children learn how to use the railway safely.

“At Northern, we aim to make a positive impact for the North East and the communities we serve.”
