Back in September 2016 Hitatchi Rail Europe, in a joint venture with Network Rail, was the first manufacturer in the UK to have its digital signalling system authorised to run passenger trains by the rail regulator. Testing was conducted along the Cambrian line by a Hitatchi train controlled by the European Train Control System (ETCS). Hitatchi has been given approval to use its modern in-cab signalling system on UK passenger services which is important progress for the digital railway programme. The potential long-term benefits of the programme include allowing up to 30 per cent more trains to run across the country, helping to address rising passenger numbers which have doubled in the past 20 years and are set to double again over the next 25 years.
