Overhead Powerline Protection

Footplate crews work in quite a warm environment and our cab is equipped with a roof ventilator to ease the crew's discomfort in really hot conditions.

One precaution we have to take when going main line is to prevent our crew poking something through the open aperture when under the overhead power lines on electrified lines and causing what could be a fatal short circuit. 

Our photo shows the just painted cab roof ventilator guard prior to fitting.
