Technical Education for Railwaymen

Technical Education for Railwaymen

Europe has always paid much attention to the subject of the technical education of the railwayman, and the endeavours of the railways in this direction are exemplified by the recent opening of two new educational establishments by the Home railways—one on the London and North Eastern line and the other on the London Underground system.

At York the first-named railway has opened what probably ranks as the best equipped signalling school in Britain. In this school there will be given to the staff dealing with the constructional and maintenance of signal, telegraph and telephone installations, instruction in the principles of electrical and mechanical signalling and of telegraphy and telephony. In addition, instruction will also be given the operating employees in block working and traffic handling.—(From our London Correspondent).
