Railway Electrification

 

Railway Electrification

As heritage advisors to Network Rail on a variety of upgrade projects, including the Great Western, Midland Mainline and the Northern Trans Pennine, we have an unrivalled knowledge of the challenges of enabling the UK’s 19th century railway network to fulfil the demands placed on it in the 21st century.

In a partnership with Network Rail and Historic England, we undertook comprehensive reviews of the heritage assets along the routes, identifying those which missed by earlier surveys. We produced a ‘layman’s guide’ to electrification to explain the technical demands in simple language.
