Invensys completes Welsh training challenge

Listen to this article

Twenty graduates and apprentices from Invensys Rail have completed a challenging five-day training and team building programme, working with the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railway (F&WHR) in North Wales.

The group was tasked with work on the new signalling system at Porthmadog Harbour station and worked on a range of projects including the fit out of the relay room.

Commenting on the programme, Tim Maynard, a solutions architect at Invensys Rail – and volunteer on the Ffestiniog Railway – said: “This is a great opportunity for engineers new to the signalling industry to get together as a team and learn some practical skills.

“During the week away, the group had the opportunity to look behind the scenes of a working railway and also saw a demonstration of the unique ‘rail-to-rail’ level crossing at Cae Pawb on the Cambrian Coast Line which has been implemented by Network Rail and the F&WHR.”
