When a busy train stops: What you need to know

A busy train that is running too long, or that is blocking other train passengers, can cause an emergency.

If you are not sure what you need, or if you can find someone who can help you, you can call the Royal Australian Air Force Emergency Response Team (RAFERS).

It is one of the best resources in the country for finding trained and experienced emergency response workers.

You can also call the Australian Federal Police (AFP), which provides specialist support to emergency responders in Australia.

There are several other agencies in the state and territory that can help, such as police, fire and ambulance services.

The Australian Red Cross and the Australian Bureau of Statistics are also available to help you.

If the train stops before you get to the train station you will be offered some accommodation.

This can be in a train station at a safe distance, or at a nearby hotel.

When you arrive at the station, you will need to get some belongings and be prepared to leave your car.

You should also be prepared for any delays that might occur if the train does not stop.

What to expect When a train is running for a long time, or is blocked by other trains, or a train driver refuses to stop at the next station.

The next stop should be the next stop.

If a train stops at a station, it means the train is not moving or is stopping at a stop that is not safe for you.

A train operator is responsible for ensuring that a train has stopped safely.

You might be asked to give up your belongings if there is a delay.

If an emergency happens while you are on the train, you might be taken to a station for medical assistance.

You may be asked for your passport or ID number.

You will need it to check in and make your next appointment.

You also need to be prepared if the emergency happens during a public transport service or at other locations.

If your journey is delayed or interrupted you should contact the relevant services.

If no train stops, the next train to the next safe stop is the next scheduled train.

The other passengers on the next service will then be given the option of waiting or travelling home.

If they wait or travel home, the train will be stopped.

Where you are The next train you travel on will be the train that stopped before you arrived.

You need to arrive safely at the train to which you have applied.

You have to give the train operator a safe time to do so.

It could take a while for the operator to stop the train and provide you with accommodation, if needed.

If there is no train, or you are unable to reach a safe stop, you must get off the train.

Where to get help You can call RAAFERS on 1800 737 810 to speak to someone on the RAFERS team, or go to the nearest RAFES Station.

If at a train stop, if there are people waiting for the next available train, and the train has not stopped, you should leave your vehicle and find a place to wait.

You could also call 911.

If that does not work, you could call the nearest police station or ambulance service.

If someone who is not on the rail service is waiting for you to get off, you are free to leave the train or wait in the station.

If not, they are allowed to get on the other train.

If everyone is on board the other one, you may be given a phone number for someone to call if you need a ride home.

Where the next bus stop is not an open area, it is not necessary to give a safe place to stay.

You are free of any liability for what happens if you stay in a bus station and a bus driver does not have enough space for you on board.

Where a bus stops at an open space, you need only to get your belongings onto the bus.

You must not leave your belongings in the open or unattended.

Where people are waiting for a train, they should not get on a train that does stop before the next.

Where there is an emergency waiting to happen, you have to get out of the train as quickly as possible.

When to call a service RAAFES does not provide a service.

You call the RAFS to get the next safety service you need.

When a service stops at the same stop, but the train service is not running, there is not a service to help.

RAAFETS has no staff or equipment to provide you and your family with safety advice.

You or someone who you know may need to contact the service to find out what to do.
