What can cab signalling ever do for us?19/09/2017 17:15Manchester
Apart from the Cambrian pilot, current ERTMS schemes in Britain are overlays on existing lineside signalling, implemented to increase the performance of certain fitted train fleets. Meanwhile proponents of ERTMS say we must move to Level 2 or Level 3 without signals. Do we properly understand the nature of the benefits that can be obtained by removing the lineside signals? Bob Barnard has worked on a variety of train protection and cab signalling schemes over 40 years - from coded track circuits to ERTMS. In this interactive talk, he will sketch the historical background and give some views on what cab signalling (whether ERTMS or other systems) can or can’t do for main line railways. The aim of this is to dispel some common misunderstandings, and to provoke discussion about the benefits and limitations of moving away from reliance on lineside signals..

IRSE Exam Preparation Workshop - Module 1&715/07/2017 09:30Birmingham
This year we bring to you a signalling system based workshop with exciting interactive talks and games, purely aimed at motivating the participants to think outside the (signal) “box”. The workshop will emphasise on the importance of engineering safety and the role it plays in the way the signalling system is developed.  In addition, we will have two sessions of attempting exam questions; there will be parallel sessions for each of the two papers.  Individuals will be able to choose on the day which to attend in each time slot and therefore can concentrate on just one module or mix-and-match.  Success in the exam depends both on having the requisite underpinning knowledge and having the skill to interpret questions and construct pertinent answers within the time available; these sessions will focus on developing these skills.
1. There is no age limitation but places are limited. We recommend early registration to guarantee your place. Following registration should you no longer be available to attend, your prompt notification to us is requested, to transfer your place to another person.
2. To register your interest, please write to with the following information:
• contact email / phone details,

IRSE Exam Module 2, 3 & 5 Workshop01/07/2017 09:30Derby
When registering please make it clear whether you are interested in:

A. Increasing your domain knowledge of signalling (general CPD / awareness).
B. Actively studying to sit any module of the IRSE Exam.

Although there will be various sessions for modules 2, 3 & 5 during this weekend, exam students should recognise that realistically they will need to select one of these to be their main focus for the event. To maximise the benefit of attendance, you will be invited to submit attempts at some selected past questions by 2nd May for feedback during the event.

Places in each category at this event are limited, therefore please complete the registration form and send it by e-mail as soon as possible to If you are interested in volunteering to support the event, email offers to
