Rail Signalling

Crewe

Following a train overspeed incident just south of Crewe Station in 2011, the sighting of CE105 and CE107 signals was deemed insufficient. This was primarily due to obstruction caused by the position of the signal indicator clusters above the Over Head Line Equipment (OHLE). The original filament and halogen fibre optic signals were also life expired with inadequate optical performance. Read More
