IRO members in the North East visited a functioning Signaller Training Centre operated by Network Rail in Leeds city centre. The visit included the opportunity for members to have a ‘hands on’ experience of signalling trains on both Absolute Block and NX (Entry/Exit) Panel simulators (with all the bells and whistles). A member of the Network Rail workforce development team was on hand for the duration of the event to run the simulators and answer questions from members regarding the design and operation of signalling systems.

Those present gained an insight into how Network Rail moves trains around the Railway using a variety of signalling systems. They also gained perspective of the procedures and demands placed on Signallers while working a shift in a Signal Box.
