The Digital Railway - an operational perspective

​Following the publication of the IRSE's White Paper "Making a Success of the Digital Railway", the IRSE is now working with WSP to lead a series of workshops looking at the operational issues associated with creating the digital railway in Britain.  An initial report has been produced from our first workshop, with further workshops to follow at which the thinking will be developed and refined.  A broad range of people from the industry are participating in these workshops, and we welcome more. Contact details are in the report.
