Barry Tan- Vehicle Dynamics Engineer, RSSB – highlights from the conference at RSN 2019

Barry Tan, Vehicle Dynamics Engineer for the Rail Safety Standards Board (RSSB), presented a guidance note relating to winter preparation and its importance – even in the summer months – and he discussed the work being undertaken to improve it for the rail industry.

His speech also discussed the Lewisham Detrainment Incident – an incident which saw the self-detrainment of passengers onto lines that were still open to traffic and electrically live at Lewisham, south-east London.

The key aim of Barry’s speech was to improve cooperation between TOCs, FOCs and infrastructure managers by aligning expectations, improving the understanding of required actions from all relevant parties and learning from experience.
