The East Lancashire Railway offers ample opportunity to learn and practice the skills that are required for competent operation of locomotives, diesel units or on-track plant and machinery.
Providing comprehensive fixed signalling arrangements at key locations, our railway is sufficiently well equipped to simulate those situations and conditions that a train driver or machine operator might encounter on the national rail network. We are also able to simulate conditions that enable drivers and operators to experience poor wheel/rail adhesion conditions under controlled conditions.
A section of our infrastructure is also approved for 100km/h operation for the purposes of driver/operator training and we can offer facilities for training on your own vehicles or those from our heritage fleet.
Classroom facilities can also be provided should a total training package be required.
The East Lancashire Railway has a proven track record in providing cost effective driver training services to the rail industry, so for more information about how we can help you deliver an attractive and practical solution to your driver/operator training needs please email our General Manager on firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
