GERT8000-AC Iss 5

AC electrified lines

Synopsis

You will need this module if you carry out the duties of a train driver, guard, shunter, designated person (DP), signaller, crossing keeper or person in charge of sidings in AC electrified areas.

Summary Of Changes

There is a new section 12.5 referring to trains that have caused a tripping, which would include trains that are not electrically-hauled. Section 12.8 has been changed so that if an ADD has been isolated on a train, the driver might be instructed not to exceed a speed lower than 100 mph for some or all of the journey. A number of changes have been made to reflect the introduction of bi-mode trains. Section 3.1 has been changed to make it clear what is meant by overhead line equipment (OLE) being made safe, and that the OLE must still be treated as dangerous. Section 7 has been changed to state that the electricity must always be switched off before a person above or near to the OLE is approached.
