A seismic change is sweeping Britain’s railways.
Large – if not larger – than the abolition of steam is the implementation of a nationwide traffic management system, with the aim of increasing the capacity and reliability of the railways while reducing operating costs. This system has two strands to it. The first is the policy of concentrating the UK’s signalling into 14 regional operating centres or ROCs, while the second is in-cab signalling (part of the European Rail Traffic Management System).
In this lavishly illustrated 132-page publication entitled Resignalling Britain, railways author and enthusiast, Michael Rhodes, starts by looking back at Britain’s Victorian signalling heritage, explains the changes that are to take place over the next five years and then reviews each of the 14 ROCs and the steam-age signalboxes they will replace on a line-by line basis.
Finally, Michael looks forwards, to the preservation of our signalling heritage.
