Network Rail is currently implementing the largest ever telecommunications renewal on Britain’s railway. The programme will replace all existing radio, cable and transmission systems, and significantly improve safety, efficiency and reliability of railway operations.
A key part of the £1.3 billion programme is the GSM-R radio system that will allow drivers and signallers to contact each other directly, any time, anywhere on the network. Over 20,000 drivers, signallers and guards will be trained to use the new equipment.
Lucid produced a 12 minute DVD that provides an overview of the system and conveys its key functionality and features to the front line staff. The DVD is used in staff training courses and general briefings across the rail industry.
