The European Rail Traffic Management System replaces signals with VDUs in the train cabs. These indicate whether or not it is safe to continue the journey. It has the facility to stop the train automatically if warning signals are ignored. This lecture will cover principles of the system based on multi-passenger and freight operations.


Non-members, visitors or guests are welcome to attend the lecture please note that a small charge of 2 will be made for non-members.
