Simulators

At a total cost of £850,000, our training simulators are the UK’s first and only full cab freight European Rail Traffic Management System capable simulators.

They’re used for basic and advanced training as part of the Driver rules exam, Mentor and Instructor training and post incident reconstruction. Currently covering the journey from Kings Cross to Peterborough, they also feature a tool which will enable other routes to be added.

Built with the recycled remains of locomotive no. 66734, the simulators were fitted out at Corys in France after a fantastic refurbishment by EMD Longport in 2018.

Technology

Cloud

By leveraging cloud solutions, we are able to reduce our carbon footprint, reduce costs, increase accessibility of data sources and create the infrastructure required for enhanced customer data integrations for train reporting, consist compositions, and in due course complete end-to-end visibility of customer orders. This ultimately benefits our customers by improving logistical processes.

Back Office Tech

We have considerably reduced our reliance on back office infrastructures as part of our ever-evolving digital transformation to provide agile access to data.

On Board Locomotive Tech

Remote Data Download (RDD) provides real time access to OTMR data, triggering alters to the fleet engineers for immediate action. Train Manager records are synchronised directly to their competence records, ensuring Operational Standards Managers are not required to visit the locomotive in the event of any incident.

Driver Hand held Tech

All Operations staff are issued with a ruggedised tablet, empowering them to access all relevant company information on the go. Using various applications, train crews can access safety critical documents, review their Rosters and Diagrams and keep up to date on their route and traction knowledge.
