RTAA Field Days

Once again I am involved in the Railway Technical Association Australia Field Days committee working to ensure the Field Days are a successful show case for our amazing industry.
The event will be held in Clyde, Sydney on the 25th and 26th Feb.
This year I have been helping by contacting exhibitors and getting them to attend, whilst also trying to get sponsorship for the event.
Please have a look at the website: http://www.rtaa.org.au/ and make sure you pop along if you are in Sydney.

Mobile Flash Butt Welding

My assignment at Sydney Trains is to trial mobile flash butt welding on the Sydney Trains Network. Several trials have been performed before, however the process has not been taken up in the business. This is an opportunity to demonstrate the advantages of MFBW and also to address some of the concerns that team members may have.
This is a project with lots of interfaces and is giving me a great opportunity to get to know lots of people in the Sydney Trains business.
I’m still in the research phase and will be engaging with industry shortly to see what services can be offered by the contractors in the market.
