[Conductor]: Driver of train 5029? Over [Driver]: This is the driver of train 5029. Over [Conductor]: A passenger just notified me about somone on the platform next to us who wants to jump [Conductor]: But I see now other passengers on the platform restain him. Over [Driver]: Oh no, and now? [Conductor]: I think we need to wait here [Conductor]: And we should call NS Security and 112. (EU emergency number) Over [Driver]: Okay, if you do that. Then I will inform the dispatcher [Conductor]: I will do that, I’m walking now to the back of the train. Over [Driver]: Okay, fine. We will keep contact with each other [Driver]: I will come to you soon [Other train driver]: Conductor, there is a fight on the platform. Over [Other conductor]: This is the conductor of the 5018. Over [Conductor]: Colleagues on the SGMm that just drove in at Rijswijk [Conductor]: There is a passenger who probably wants to jump. Over [Driver (to dispatcher)]: This is the driver of train 5029 on the station of Rijswijk at track 1 (other conductor inaudibly talking through) [Driver]: I have got an notification of my conductor that there is a fight on track 2 [Driver]: and that it is about a passenger who possibly wants to jump in front of the train [Driver]: So I will stay here for a while of minutes and the conductor is informing the Security center [Dispatcher]: That is understood. Can you check if the person is really with the conductor [Dispatcher]: Or if the person is still walking around? Over [Driver]: I haven’t checked yet [Driver]: But I only received there is a fight, which I heard from another colleague via the transceiver as well [Dispatcher]: That is understood. I will set signal number 466 back to “stop” [Dispatcher]: and I would like to hear when and if there is more information. Over [Driver]: Okay, fine. I will go to the conductor now to see exactly what is going on [Driver]: I will call back as soon as I know more. Over [Dispatcher]: That is all understood. Thank you. Over and out [Driver] Over and out [Driver]: Conductor of train 5029. I am looking outside now, but I can’t see anything

[Driver]: Do you have more information? Over [Conductor]: Yes I am now standing on the platform… (inaudible) [Driver]: Okay, so it is platform 2 we are talking about? Over [Conductor]: That is correct… (inaudible) [Driver]: Yes, okay, then we will wait here. The dispatcher is informed and has turned the signal to “stop” [Driver]: So if we are going to drive again, I will call the dispatcher first. Well, okay [Conductor]: That is understood Ladies and gentleman, good morning. At this moment we can’t- and are not allowed to depart due to a suicidal person on the tracks so we will wait here for a moment until we can be sure it is safe to depart [Conductor]: To the driver of train 5029, the man has just been caught by the police [Conductor]: That means we can continue our service as Sprinter. Over [Driver]: Okay, he has been caught by the police [Driver]: Well, I am going to inform the dispatcher and ask if we may depart. Thanks [Conductor]: That is understood. Over and out [Dispatcher]: This is the dispatcher of Den Haag Hollands Spoor [Driver]: This is the driver of train 5029, on platform 1 at Rijswijk [Driver]: I just received from my conductor that the person has been caught by the police *Beep beep, i’m a transceiver and I need attention* [Driver]: I just received from my conductor that the person has been caught by the police [Driver] So we are ready to depart. Over [Dispatcher]: That is understood. I heard from your colleague on Rijswijk, on the other side of the station [Dispatcher]: …that the person was in front of her train. So now [Dispatcher]: …you have permission from the dispatcher Delft and Hollands Spoor to continue your service [Dispatcher]: …towards Delft junction. I will clear the signal now [Dispatcher]: Hold on just a second [Dispatcher]: Towards Delft. My only request is to take it easy when departing. Over [Driver]: Yes, okay. So we have permission to depart towards Delft and need to take it easy [Driver]: Until I am out of the tunnel I assume [Dispatcher]: That is correct. Over

[Driver]: Okay, we will do that. Thank you and have a good shift. Over and out [Driver]: Conductor of train 5029, did you want to say something? Over [Conductor]: Correct, speaking with the conductor of train 5029. Are we ready to depart? Over [Driver]: I have just asked permission to the dispatcher and he/she will set the signal to “clear” [Driver]: By then we would be allowd to depart [Driver]: But I think our signal is yellow already, so we should be allowed to depart [Driver]: Don’t you have a departure light? Over [Conductor]: Negative, I don’t have a departure light. There is one standing back here [Conductor]: …which practically always lights up when departing towards Rotterdam Centraal. Over [Driver]: Yes, but that is the other way. I think our signal is yellow, so we will depart [Driver]: And we will take it easy when driving out of the tunnel [Conductor]: Understood, we will depart now. Thank you.
