Event Details

At the heart of railway operations in Scotland is the Integrated Control Centre at Springburn.  This is an opportunity to meet Mark Ilderton, Head of Integrated Control, who will discuss managing railway operations and will provide a conducted tour of Integrated Control.

Here a team of Controllers responsible for the delivery of every single service in Scotland daily will provide an insight into what they do on a daily basis.  This ranges from the management of infrastructure failures such as broken rails and degraded signalling to managing mainline train failures and extreme weather events.

If you are travelling by train please board 17:22 Queen Street High Level / Falkirk Grahamston service and alight at Springburn. An IRO Scottish Area Council Member will meet you at Springburn and direct you to Integrated Control (a 10 minute walk).
