A newly-married couple unbelievably decided to pose for their wedding photos on live rail tracks.
The bridal couple were among a spate of trespassers on Britain’s railways in recent months.
Network Rail said more than 5,000 incidents were recorded between June and September.
The total of 1,239 in September alone was up 17% year-on-year, and the most for that month in the past five years.
Many cases involved people using the railways as a backdrop for photographs.
The bridal couple were caught on CCTV standing on rail tracks near Whitby, North Yorkshire, in July.
Hollyoaks actor Ellis Hollins was forced to apologise during the same month after posting images on social media from a photoshoot on the railway.
He admitted it was “irresponsible” and he was “careless to take part in such a dangerous situation”.
Superintendent Alison Evans of BTP commented: “The railway is not an appropriate or safe setting for a photographic backdrop, no matter how scenic the setting.
“Every time someone strays onto the rail network they are not only putting themselves at risk of serious, life-threatening injury, but also delaying essential journeys.”
Network Rail launched its You vs Train campaign in partnership with British Transport Police to highlight the issue of young people trespassing.
The number of incidents involving children at 51 targeted locations has fallen in each of the past two years.
