Tom O'Boyle will be featured in the Channel 5 documentary Inside King's Cross: The Railway.
Mr Tom O’Boyle is to appear in the series Inside King’s Cross: The Railway, which will be broadcast at 9pm.

A signaller who has worked for Network Rail for seven years, Mr O’Boyle, from Lincoln, will be shown controlling train movements and level crossing barriers.

He said: “Safety is the most important aspect of my job. I’m tasked with making sure that trains have a safe path to travel along and that members of the public are protected from trains at level crossings.

“We work really hard to get people where they need to be on time. When a disruptive incident occurs, we look at lots of different ways to make up the time and reduce delays for passengers.

“I hope the documentary will be a real eye-opener and show people all that goes in to keeping the railway running.

“There are quite a lot of urban myths about the railway, so it would be great to dispel some of those.”
