How to Become a Signaller...


I don’t know of any websites that tell you how to go about this but according to the page on the Network Rail site they train 400-500 new Signallers a year, far more than I would have imagined. Much of the training takes place at purpose built centres in Watford and Leeds. This could be a really useful and educational way into the industry, especially as the minimum age is only 18 instead of 21 and holds out the possibility of moving on to train driving with a TOC later. I should think the medical standards are about the same as for train drivers. Network Rail job vacancies are here and the e-mail contact is Some general information about British signalling will be found at The Signal Box.

There is a Network Rail information video HERE.
