If you have a question about this talk, please contact Sebastian Gibson.

We are joined by David Waboso, Managing Director of the Digital Railway program in Network Rail.

Digital Railway is industry’s plan for targeting digital systems to increase rail capacity and improve network performance. It is the proposal for the UK to adopt modern digital signalling and train control within the next 25 years. By using in-train signalling (called the European Train Control System) and traffic management systems which optimise the speed and movements of trains on the network, they can be run closer together without supervision.

David shall no doubt be able to allow us to realise this vision, please see http://digitalrailway.co.uk for pre-talk information.

Mixed audience, from many different subject areas. All welcomed to come.

About the CURC :

Founded in 1911 from the Cambridge University branch of The Railway Club, Cambridge University Railway Club (CURC) is the second oldest railway enthusiast club in the world! The CURC arranges an event in Cambridge most weeks during Full Term, most often a presentation by an invited speaker, almost always a key professional from the rail industry, on a specific subject. The club is not just train talk, but about how the railway works. We have a celebrated history of CURC alumni who now work in the railway industry, with some at quite senior levels.

Membership for students costs £10 per year or £25 for life membership. We charge £3 at the door for non-members, upon your third entry to a talk (first two talks are free). So come and try us out for free, gain exclusive access to key railway professionals and depots and you might just want to become a member! (We won’t tell anyone you are ;) )

This talk is part of the Cambridge University Railway Club series.
