Rail Operator Perspectives

“Force majeure events, such as the Covid-19 pandemic, also have a big impact on risk appetite and manufacturers’ ability to provide sensible programmes, risk management plans, resourcing plans, etc.”

Engineering Director, Commuter Rail Operator

“The thing that really worries me is - have we got enough drivers in the systems to allow the test trains to be run and the new trains to be introduced into service?”

Metro Services Director, UK Metro Operator

“A modern train is effectively a mobile data centre, communicating with the lineside equipment, the depot, the operational control centre, train crew, and passengers. These information flows offer hackers several potential points of entry, all of which need to be carefully managed to mitigate the security threat.”

Engineering Director, Intercity Rail Operator

“Change to business is bigger than just the new fleet and depot – organisational change is key to successful realisation of the programme."

Metro Development Director, UK Metro Operator

“The margin for the operators is very small so maintenance is a key issue - from day one you know how much it will cost to buy a train but you have to guess how much it will cost to maintain it. One of the key points of the specification is how will we operate this train and what will be the maintenance cost.”

Metro Development Director, UK Metro Operator

“This is a major part of the program and is often one of the biggest delaying factors in train delivery.”

Engineering Director, Intercity Rail Operator
