Summary

We have developed this workshop to give you a basic understanding of the role of traction and rolling stock within the context of railway systems as a whole.

As part of the Institution’s traction and rolling stock course suite, in this course we introduce you to vehicle subsystems and components. 

We also analyse how a vehicle's design impacts its performance and safety requirements. We have designed this course In association with SNC-Lavalin Rail .

Who should attend?

We have designed this suite of courses for engineers working within traction and rolling stock. This includes recent graduates moving into traction and rolling stock; non-traction and rolling stock engineers moving into new roles within traction and rolling stock; production and engineering managers new to the industry; infrastructure and asset managers; and accident investigators.

How will I benefit?

After the course you will be able to: 

• Recognise types of traction and rolling stock and common variants 
• State the main subcomponents for each type 
• Explain the functional, interface and safety requirements 
• Recognise and identify common vehicle-related hazards
Contributes 7 CPD hours

Excellent introduction to TRS, very useful and has given a great insight to the rail industry.
