In January, the Hitachi Class 385 blended simulator system was commissioned in Glasgow for ScotRail.
CORYS supplied a full cab simulator, ultra light and laptop simulators that will provide opportunities for ScotRail to develop their existing driver training programmes. Using the ultralight and laptop simulators will make the early stages of driver training more engaging and interactive. While the full cab simulator will support one-to-one training and driver competence assessments.
This is the fourth CORYS project for Hitachi rolling stock in the UK following the Class 395 for Southeastern, the Class 800 for LNER and the Class 810 for East Midlands Railway.
