Signal and Telecoms Engineering Department
The East Lancashire Railway’s Signal and Telecoms Engineering Department, (S&T), undertakes the design, installation, maintenance, renewal and faulting of the railway’s signalling and telecoms equipment.
Signalling and telecoms equipment supporting the railway’s operations is Safety Critical, and the S&T Department operates a Competence Management System to ensure its members only work on tasks for which they are assessed as competent.
Volunteers applying to join the department will be asked to complete a skills profile so that their application can be considered fully.
Ideally S&T Department volunteers will have an interest in railways and in particular railway signalling, and will also have knowledge and experience in one or more of the following:
Mechanical signal engineering
Electrical signal engineering
Mechanical engineering, (including machining, fabrication and fitting),
Traditional or IP based telecoms
