Following an international call for tenders, Grand Central has awarded CORYS the contract to design and build two European Train Control System (ETCS) train driving simulators for their Class 180 Alstom rolling stock.
CORYS’ experience with high-fidelity ECTS simulation worldwide and in the UK was a key factor in Grand Central’s choice.
CORYS is pleased to bring Grand Central compact state-of-the-art simulators to support the introduction of ETCS.
The locomotives Class 180 are currently retrofitted; the new simulators will help familiarise drivers ahead of infrastructure deployment.
