62For better prevention of trespass on railways

(1)Any person who trespasses upon any railway lines or sidings or in any tunnel or upon any embankment, cutting or similar work forming part of any railway of the tramway system which is not designated as a tramway and which is sufficiently fenced to deter trespass, or upon any other lands of the Executive in dangerous proximity to any such lines or other works or to any electrical apparatus used for or in connection with the working of any such railway, shall be guilty of an offence and liable on summary conviction to a fine not exceeding level 3 on the standard scale.

(2)No person shall be convicted of an offence under this section unless it shall be proved to the satisfaction of the court before which complaint is laid that public warning has been given to persons not to trespass upon the railways of the tramway system by notice clearly exhibited and maintained at the station on the tramway system nearest to the place where the offence is alleged to have been committed.
