Roll-out of the new on-line system for identification and maintenance records for the GB train fleet continues with functions from the Rail Vehicle Records System (RAVERS) going live last weekend, further contributing to an industry saving of £3.5million over 5 years.
R2 first launched in November, with the old Rolling Stock Library functions coming across. Now R2 has also embraced the RAVERS system, providing a one-stop shop for information relating to vehicles running on the GB mainline rail network.
Modernising the way rolling stock records are kept and maintained is a crucial step in helping to ensure that rail journeys in GB are carried out safely and efficiently. The new system reduces costs to user organisations, saving the industry £3.5million over 5 years when compared to the 2 legacy systems it replaces and will continue to integrate with key industry systems including TOPS, Gemini, GENIUS, Integrale, PADS, IMACS and NVR.
Network Rail, train and freight operators, rolling stock leasing companies and other organisations have had the opportunity to get trained and familiarise themselves with the new system.
