RED 50 - Rail Adhesion

Every Autumn, the railway faces an increased incidence of low adhesion events, including station overruns, SPADs and service changes.

This issue of RED reminds us why it's so important to drive to the conditions, whether that's caused by leaf fall, ice, rain or oil contamination.

Programme

The programme covers:

  • Professional driving in low adhesion
  • Reconstruction - discussion points
  • Further information
  • Changes to terminology

Reports of adhesion issues are not followed through properly, with drivers and the MOM not given enough information to remain safe.

 

If you have any topics that you’d like to see in future episodes of RED, or would like to give us your feedback on any episode of RED, we’d love to hear from you. Get in touch by emailing red@rssb.co.uk
