Park Signalling have recently assisted telent Technology Services Ltd and Network Rail Scotland’s Railway signalling maintenance staff to replace the Radio Electronic Token Block (RETB) Visual Display Unit (VDU) computers at Banavie Signalling Centre, near Fort William in Scotland.
Radio Electronic Token Block is a system of railway signalling used in the United Kingdom. It is a development of the physical token system for controlling traffic on single lines. Banavie Signalling Centre controls the West Highland Line from Helensburgh Upper to Fort William and Mallaig, and from Crianlarich to Oban.
Having been installed and commissioned in the 1980’s, the existing VDU computers had reached the end of their useful life. Park Signalling had previously provided the replacement computers ready for installation. Over the weekend of 25th/26th July 2019, six computers were replaced by a combined team from Network Rail, telent and Park Signalling. The work was completed successfully and within the stipulated timescales.
