ABSTRACT
This article reports that the global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) can play a role in building a more effective network. GNSS presents opportunities for the railways at many levels, from in-train entertainment options for passengers, to ultra-precise location of track faults and automated safety systems to help remove signal or driver error. Building an industry-standard GNSS system that could meet the needs of rolling stock manufacturers, train operating companies. Network Rail, safety bodies, the government and the passengers would test the mettle of industries with a far better record of moving forward together than the British railways.
