The railway seeks an enthusiastic volunteer with a keen interest in railway signalling to undertake the duties of the railway’s Signal Engineer, responsible for the continuing safety and availability of the railway’s signalling systems.
Practical experience in electro-mechanical signal engineering and a working knowledge of relevant legislation standards and practices will be essential. While helpful, familiarity with the particular style of equipment in use on the Worth Valley Railway is not essential; having the right approach to learning, adapting and applying skills and knowledge will be much more critical. An engineering degree or equivalent, together with corporate IRSE membership or progress towards it, is expected, although, exceptionally, relevant knowledge and experience may suffice.
The railway is about to embark on a significant project to provide comprehensive signalling facilities at Keighley. The Signal Engineer will work with the project team to develop maintenance practices and facilitate training, including participation in interface works and scheme commissioning, ready to take over the installation on completion. This work will be subject to review by the project’s Independent Competent Person in compliance with the ROGS Regulations.
