Frauscher: Maintaining The Past, Creating The Future

“It’s our pleasure to have been part of this project. The experts working on this line are all volunteers, which means they love what they do – just as much as we do. The Schweizer Flex System uses our Wheel Sensor RSR123 to provide reliable train detection for the level crossing, and the Flex system integrated well into the existing signalling system. As The Dean Forest Railway was familiar with our equipment, it was the obvious choice for extending their train detection equipment at Parkend.

“Whilst operating on a modern level the whole system can be integrated into the existing infrastructure via relay interfaces. The most impressive thing is that these relays are interfacing directly with the mechanical interlocking. In that way, the FAdC has revitalised this historical installation.”
