Inside the new Network Rail/SWT training centre. PAUL CLIFTON.

The joint venture between Network Rail and South West Trains includes a suite of simulators for driver training, a mock signalling centre, and a huge hall with various track layouts, signals and trackside control systems.

The aim is to train drivers, signallers, track engineers and even customer service staff alongside each other. It brings together training previously done at a variety of smaller sites, including in Basingstoke and at Woking.
