IRO Area

Event Details

31/01 Due to Operational delays the planned commencement date of the integrated Control has been delayed and will not be available as was planned, therefore this event will now focus on the current WMT Control (that is in situ in a different part of WMSC) and what the future will look like. This gives members an opportunity to see the ‘before’ and later in the year we will offer another opportunity to see the ‘after’


As the industry moves towards closer alliances, come and join us on a visit to see just how that is working in reality; West Midlands Signalling Centre is now home to an integrated Control where NR and West Midlands Trains colleagues sit side by side overseeing the day to day running of the network. Newly created you will have an opportunity to see not only the Control set up but also to engage with colleagues who work there

As the signalling centre is near Duddeston station we will be taking the 1657 from Birmingham New Street for the 4 minute journey to Duddeston with the signalling centre being a few minutes walk from there with the event starting approx. 1730. We will be aiming to return on the 1851 or 1906 from Duddeston. Those of you wishing to drive direct to the location the postcode is B7 4SN

This is a great opportunity for expanding your knowledge in Railway Operations and is likely to be a popular event so please use the booking system to reserve your space.


CPD Topics Covered: Delivering Customer Services, Delivering Passenger and Freight Services, Train Movement Control Systems


Bookings are closed for this event.
