Dear Northern Trains Limited,

I am looking for a list of all reported instances of train surfers (people riding on the outsides of trains such as on the roof or hanging on to the back) on your trains.

On the list please include the following:

• The date of the incident (and the time too if you also hold this).

• The location of the incident (either the station or location that they were seen or the stations or locations that they rode between).

• The class or stock of train that they surfed.

• Whether or not you reported them to the police for prosecution.

Preferably i would like this information for the period of the past ten years but if that is not possible (like if you do not hold information from that long ago or it would be too expensive or time consuming to obtain) than just provide me with information as fat back as you are able to go.

Yours faithfully,

Peter Marshall
