New device prevents trains from rolling back by accident
Featured story

A new device, created as part of the RSSB Future Railway programme, which prevents trains from rolling backward by accident is to be piloted with Chiltern Railways.

The GUARD system can detect whether a train is reversing and will apply the brakes if it believes the 'roll back' is unintentional.

It is a development made possible by Gobotix GoTRAX* a system which can locate the precise position of a train on the network without the use of GPS or other trackside objects.
