Track Access Services have been out filming in the South of England and Wales, capturing previously unfilmed routes on the UK rail network. Filming will continue throughout 2017, with complete UK coverage scheduled for the end of this year.
New footage captured over the past two weeks equates to 1326 miles - just over 6% of the total network, this is in addition to large sections of the network that have already been filmed.
Complete driver's-eye coverage of the UK rail industry is being captured for the benefit of rail industry users, providing virtual track visits and route learning material via a convenient and secure streaming platform.
Footage is streamed via Track Access Portal, an online distribution platform, providing users with forward facing in-cab video linked to moving locational maps. Routes are organised by Sectional Appendix Line of Route and can be linked to National Electronic Sectional Appendix (NESA) maps or third party maps.
Track Access Portal provides industry users with access from any internet enabled device via an individual or group login. In addition to interactive map functionality, footage can be enhanced with onscreen graphic overlays and commentaries for additional user information.
Track Access Services are commited to capturing complete UK route coverage and providing a convenient resource platform to benefit rail drivers and operators.
