  • Phil Benzie
  • Edinburgh Waverley Remodelling (Will Storey, Story Rail)

    The presentation gives an account of the permanent way and other works recently undertaken at Edinburgh Waverley station in order to improve the capacity of the track layout, when Story Rail was appointed to complete the works following the collapse of Carillion Rail as the original contractor. This included the lengthening of platforms at the west end of the station in order to accommodate longer Scotrail trains, and the reinstatement of the former Motorail bay platforms at the east end for passenger use by LNER services. Also covered in the presentation is the extension of overhead electrification within the station area to serve the new layout.
