At the conference, Craig will discuss 21st century depot control and what can be done to locate efficiencies in depot operations to reduce delays.
He will discuss the Tie-Fenlock system which was first installed in the UK at the Central Rivers Depot in 2000 and has since established a track record of outstanding reliability.
It is imperative that train movements into and out of a depot are as smooth as possible which is why the innovative depot control system was created.
Craig will share information on how the system assists the depot team to optimise the operation of the depot, including how it’s made depot operators’ jobs quicker and easier so a single operator can control even complex depots.
