Our podcasts are produced to give you a bit more insight into how our railway is developing. Each episode involves an expert in their field talking about some of the work that's been done, by RSSB and others, to make the railway a better, safer, more sustainable place to work and travel.

We now have two main streams: The RSSB Podcast, which will cover topics of more interest to senior managers and decision makers. The newer stream, RSSB at The Front Line, will cover topics likely to be of more interest to those working on the front line: people who work on trains and at stations, those who build and maintain trains, those working in control rooms and signal boxes, and those who venture out to build and maintain the infrastructure.  When we create a series of episodes on one topic we'll also group them separately from this page.

In episode 25 in the RSSB Podcast stream Patrick Allinson of GWR talks about the G-FORCE Tool and how it has been used in operational decision making in the Control Centre.  And episode 26 (23 September) takes a look at a remote condition monitoring trial on Grand Central Railway trains. It is exploring the use of the Internet of Things and 5G communications, to improve the customer experience.

The next episode in RSSB at the Front Line (30 September) will look at the work done by those in yards and depots to improve the condition of freight vehicles that enter the network. And at what's being done to help make their jobs more efficient and safer.
