Railway Signalling, from Policemen to Digital Rail
Presenter: James Denny, Network Rail
James Denny is a signaller in Network Rail’s Thames Valley Signalling Centre as well as a union Health & Safety rep. James cut his teeth on the steam-hauled and mechanical-signalled Bluebell Railway and has seen most variants of control systems in between. As well as managing the embryonic signalling & telecoms department for the Cholsey &Wallingford Railway, James is also a member of the Network Rail/Trades Union consultation group trialling Traffic Management, a component of the Digital Railway. James will attempt to give a whistle-stop tour of the history of railway signalling, right up to the modern day, where the Digital Railway and large portions of Victorian infrastructure make uneasy bedfellows.
