V/Line has train drivers positioned across all parts of the rail network so they can deliver services to all parts of regional Victoria, Australia.
To help drivers complete important training at their home depot, V/Line have invested in world leading technology from CORYS, to develop a portable desktop driver training simulator which can be transported to locations across the regional rail network.
The portable desktop simulator features a large curved screen, which replicates the driver’s view from the train cabin, as well as two touchscreens and controllers to simulate the train’s controls.
CORYS is also completing a major upgrade of V/Line’s two permanent train cabin simulators at its Docklands training centre. The upgrade will help new trainees continue to gain valuable train handling experience in a realistic, safe, simulated training environment, and also assist qualified drivers to complete refresher training and become familiar with the features of new infrastructure for years to come.
