UK: New simulators support cutting edge rail training
GB Railfreight (GBRf) is investing in two new state-of-the-art simulators for its new training school in Peterborough (UK). At a total cost of GBP 850,000 (EUR 973,000), they will be the UK’s first and only full cab freight European rail traffic management system (ERTMS) capable simulators.
The equipment will be used by new and existing drivers, mentor and instructor training and post incident reconstruction. They will initially cover the journey from Kings Cross to Peterborough, and are designed with a route building tool which will enable the addition of all other GBRf routes at a later date. (ben)
