Lee Clinton, Telent, Head of Operations (Scotland) posted on LinkedIn: "Great to be back seeing the recent enhancements to the Far North Line and how it's all settling in, seeing the benefits of the new request stops working, enhanced radio coverage, fast token exchanges. All making a real difference and benefiting the operational railway and travelling public.
"It's always very rewarding when I'm greeted by drivers and signallers who are pleased with the improvements, it makes it all worth it."
FoFNL echoes his comments - Telent is one of the unsung heroes of the Far North Line since the company is responsible for the RETB signalling system that keeps the trains running. Soon they will have the operation of point motors at passing loops added to their radio-control responsibilities.
