Huge congratulations to Lilith Morris, winner of the Rail Safety Week 2017 Mascot Competition.

The winning design was picked by the team over at ACoRP.  Lilith’s drawing has been turned in to an animation and a handmade teddy for her to keep.

We’d like to thank Chris Vine Author of Peter’s Railway books who kindly donated the full range of books to the winning design.  Thank you also to David Morris from Stobart Rail who took the competition home for his daughter to enter.

Thank you!
