Projection makes a powerful point in Rail Safety Week installation for PTA by Gatecrasher

| | No Comments

Visitors to Northbridge learned just how quickly a train can “come out of nowhere” as part of a projection installation to promote Rail Safety Week.


The reactions of passers-by to the image of a fast-approaching train were filmed as part of the campaign.   The concept for the installation came from Gatecrasher and the production was handled by Stir Fry Content Kitchen.

Public Transport Authority spokesman David Hynes said the people surprised by the projection escaped unscathed, if a little embarrassed in some instances.

“More than 500 incidents of rail trespass are recorded every year. If you are caught out, it can seem like a train has come out of nowhere,” Mr Hynes said.

“While the reactions we captured in this video are initially entertaining, it’s a sobering fact that this shock is something railcar drivers regularly witness from their cab”.
