*Video guidance: There is no sound on this video of CCTV footage from rail crossings at Galgorm in Ballymena and Antrim.
Over the past year, an average of 10 incidents have been recorded at public crossings per month. Almost 160 prosecutions have been made - 91 of them related to safety.
Children playing on railway lines has become an increased problem over the summer months, with more than 110 incidents across Northern Ireland in July and August alone.
"The rules are simple," Ian Campbell, Head of Rail Operations at Translink, said.
"Don't use the tracks as a shortcut; on the platform, always wait behind the yellow line; never mess around near the tracks; use railway crossings safely; and motorists should never be tempted to jump the lights or beat the barriers at railway crossings.
"We have been running our 'Deadline' rail safety campaign all summer to reinforce these messages."
Many pedestrians and motorists are oblivious to the very real dangers that exist.
Ian Campbell, Translink
Monday's exercise at Sheep Pen level crossing in Antrim was also organised as valuable training for the emergency services.
Group Commander Paul Coyle from the Northern Ireland Fire & Rescue Service said: "Our role when we attend emergency incidents at level crossings is to stabilise vehicles and rescue people trapped as quickly as possible so that they can receive medical attention.
"The training exercise not only helps test our emergency response to such incidents, but is a stark reminder for the public of the consequences of a moment's lapse in concentration or taking unnecessary risks on our roads."
For safety reasons, CCTV is in operation at stations, railway crossings and on all trains.
Translink is reminding the public that they monitor inappropriate behaviour and prosecute anyone caught damaging property, trespassing or endangering others.
The company has released footage of some near misses at rail crossings as a warning to others.
