Digital Railway will have a transformational impact to our rail network. Customers will see early and clear benefits in terms of increased rail system capacity and resilience, and reduced reactionary delays. Train operators and their owning groups will see greater certainty around future costs, and increased customer satisfaction. This can achieved through early and constructive engagement with the wider supply chain, and a sustained partnership between train operators, local Network Rail routes and local Digital Rail deployment projects – topics that will be covered at the Conference.
