Chris,

I would be interested to know of those railway incidents which have
potentially attributed 'distraction by the cab radio' as a contributory
factor.  Please don't go to great lengths to search anything out, but if
you do have something immediately to hand, your assistance would be very
much appreciated.

Many Thanks

-- Andy Reynolds
