Mark I and hinged door rolling stock exemptions

Applying for an exemption for Mark 1 or hinged door rolling stock.

What do the regulations say?

The Railway Safety Regulations 1999 (RSR) required the withdrawal of unmodified Mark I rolling stock from 1 January 2005. Mark 1 rolling stock is less crashworthy than modern stock and there are risks to passengers from pull down windows and the absence of central door locking.

RSR regulation 4 prohibited the operation of Mark I rolling stock after 31 December 2002 unless it had been modified to prevent, so far as practicable, over-riding in the event of a collision.

RSR regulation 5 prohibited the operation of hinged door rolling stock without central locking from 1 January 2005.

RSR regulation 6 provides us with a wide-ranging power to grant exemptions. We are able to consider all circumstances of the case in reaching a decision.Mark I and hinged door rolling stock exemptions
