GB Railfreight is investing £850 000 in two Corys full-cab ERTMS-capable locomotive simulators for its new training school at Peterborough.
The simulators are being built using the recycled remains of EMD locomotive 66 734, which was involved in a landslip and derailment at Loch Treig in 2012.
They will initially cover the route from London King's Cross to Peterborough, with a route-building tool which will enable the addition of all other GBRf routes.
'When finished, these simulators will enable us to provide cutting-edge training not only to GBRf staff, but the wider rail industry', said GBRf Managing Director John Smith.
