Successful DIGITAL Day held at the Headquarters of UIC in Paris:

Starting to build bridges between Railways and start ups in order to reinvent together the mobility of tomorrow

The Digital Day focused on Services for Passengers and Freight

UIC organized the UIC DIGITAL Day on 7 October in Paris. Around 100 participants, coming from the Railways as well as the start ups world, met to discuss about the links between digitalisation on the one hand and Freight & Passenger services on the other. Representatives came from Europe as well as beyond.
In a rapidly changing work environment this workshop had the objective to build bridges between the different generations and between railway experts and digitally skilled young people who could, if they find a way of cooperating, together reinvent the railways.

Based on a business-oriented approach, the discussions aimed to show the participants in a practical way how digitalisation can bring added value to freight and passenger services, what kind of economic benefits members can expect from it, what its limits are, etc.

UIC Director General, Mr Jean-Pierre LOUBINOUX, said:

With the emergence of new technology we have entered what Jeremy RIFKIN calls the third industrial revolution: the Digital Era. Transport modes and railways as the backbone must take advantage of this new opening. After technical and administrative interoperability we must carry out the standardisation work of integration between informationisation and industrialisation.

CDOs (Chief Digital Officers) are appointed among most of our members and UIC on behalf of the railway community decided at the last General Assembly to create a digital platform. This platform aims to share creative ideas, to ensure harmonisation, to support new developments and to boost innovation. It has identified three main areas of potential interest: security, services and productivity. More specifically, three workshops have been organised this year: in Washington in May on Safety; in Beijing next March on IoT input in Services and Infrastructure. […]

I take this opportunity to thank Yves TYRODE, CDO of SNCF, for his chairmanship of the UIC Digital Platform. A new governance of the Platform will be announced during the next UIC General Assembly on 1st December in St Petersburg. […]

In addition, a Digital Awards campaign has been launched with the thousands of start-ups that can boost the traditional creative process of rail companies with crowd-funding, crowd-sourcing, open sources and open data.UIC has also initiated the development of several prototypes known as Proof of Concepts: concrete answers to concrete questions such as the detection of shunting defects on track circuits. These prototypes, presented to our members, will be the basis for new IRSs (International Railway Solutions) which will then be passed on to industry.

So to conclude this quick overview, if we know that by 2030 two billion people will be urbanised; two billion people have no access to any means of transport; two billion people live on less than one dollar a day; and that there will be two billion more people on earth if we realise that by 2030 the Internet of Things (IoT) will add 10 – 15 trillion dollars to global GDP; if we agree that transport is the mobility of goods and people and is therefore the key to social economic growth; if we share the opinion that rail is the backbone of a new optimised transport modal mix, then the question is not if or when we survive this third digital revolution, but how fast we catch up with it and become a vector and driver of it. […]

UIC, on behalf of all its members around the world – some more advanced or developed than others – but all with the same concern and determination to be developing together, has already started to share, to open and to connect.

Among key messages heard during this one day conference, we can note that there is a need to have a user-centered approach and Customer centricity and operational excellence are major objectives – culture and speed of innovation are crucial factors.

Björn WESTERBERG, CEO of ASTOC (Association of Swedish Train Operating Companies) highlighted on the digital disruption which is happening all around us, and now. He said:

Digital is disrupting the way we need to think about delivering on our transportation mission.

He followed by:

Progress is underway, but we must accelerate.We in the railway industry need to take advantage of the disruptions and capture the opportunities.

Evgeny CHARKIN, Chief Digital Officer of Russian Railways (RZD), particularly focused on “Digital Railroad vision & implementation”. He particularly mentioned that

Digital railroad means cooperation: looking for innovations, joints efforts, and by using UIC Digital Platform as enabler


The “UIC DIGITAL Day” gave also the opportunity for several start up to concretely present their projects already at the benefice of the Railways, as for example the luggage robot Effibot currently tested at Paris Gare de l’Est Railway station.
This workshop gave also the possibility for Railways and start ups to meet and learn from each others in order to maybe reinvent the Railways and the mobility in the future.

Beyond this workshop, the main ideas and messages exchanged during that day will feed the UIC Digital Progress Paper, a document published for the first time in May 2016 and which catalyses step by step useful inputs following an iterative approach to enrich the Railway community and partners.

United States: Amtrak investment package to advance Washington Union Station concourse modernization

Expanded station and maintenance facilities improve customer experience, support economic growth

Amtrak will use a portion of its $2.45 billion investment package in next-generation high-speed Acela Express trainsets and Northeast Corridor (NEC) infrastructure improvements to fund construction for the modernization of Washington Union Station’s passenger rail concourse and the expansion of Amtrak’s D.C.-based fleet maintenance facility.

“This is an enormous milestone for Washington Union Station, securing the next steps in modernizing this gateway to our Nation’s Capital,” said Stephen Gardner, Executive Vice President of Amtrak Infrastructure and Investment Development. “With 37 million people passing through the station each year, these investments are critical to regional connectivity and economic growth and will result in a premier travel experience for Union Station customers.”

The investment will fund full-phase construction of Amtrak’s Concourse Modernization Project –announced in March– a near-term comprehensive renovation of Washington Union Station’s intercity and commuter concourse that will double the concourse’s current capacity and upgrade key customer amenities including new restrooms, boarding gates, seating, and ClubAcela lounge. Design for the project, previously funded with contributions from Amtrak and the Union Station Redevelopment Corporation (USRC), is already well underway.

Early action construction will start in the fall of 2016 and include the relocation of heating and ventilation. Full-phased construction, funded by the new investment package, is anticipated to start in 2017 and will seek to minimize impacts to all station users.

“The funds for railroad infrastructure improvements made available by our work on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee are being put to premium use here at Union Station,” said Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC). “Amtrak’s Concourse Modernization Project begins the transformation of Union Station into the 21st century multi-modal train station we have been working to achieve.”

The Concourse Modernization project is the first set of improvements to come to life as part of Washington Union Station’s 2nd Century plan, a comprehensive improvement initiative comprised of multiple projects in coordination with USRC, the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA), and private real estate developer Akridge.

“We are elated that a District of Columbia landmark that is utilized by thousands of residents and visitors each and every day will receive a fresh start,” said D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser. “This investment in Union Station by the Obama Administration and Amtrak is truly monumental.”

In addition to concourse improvements, funding will be used to modify Amtrak’s fleet maintenance facility in Washington, D.C. The existing two-track high-speed maintenance building in Amtrak’s Ivy City Yard will be expanded to enclose a third track, which supports the creation of highly-technical jobs for the District of Columbia as well as improve the on board and station customer experience that will accommodate the high-speed rail service levels. Demand for Acela Express service is as popular as ever, with many trains selling out during peak travel periods. From 2.4 million passengers in Fiscal Year 2002 to 3.4 million passengers in Fiscal Year 2015, Acela Express has led a significant growth in revenue and market share in the Northeast.

Late last month, Amtrak announced it’s contracting with Alstom to produce 28 next-generation high-speed trainsets that will replace the equipment used to provide Amtrak’s premium Acela Express service. Amtrak is funding both the infrastructure improvements as well the new trainsets through the FRA’s Railroad Rehabilitation & Improvement Financing program, which will be repaid through growth in NEC revenues.

In addition to station improvements at Washington Union Station, customers will see improvements at Moynihan Station in New York City, and New Carrollton Station and Baltimore Penn Station in Maryland, as well as track capacity and ride quality improvements to the NEC that will benefit both Acela Express riders and other Amtrak and commuter passengers.

The 11th International Conference on Critical Information organised by UIC opened today at Paris UIC Headquarters

The International Union of Railways (UIC), the worldwide railway association, is organising the 11th edition of CRITIS conference (Critical Information Infrastructures Security) from 10 to 12 October at Paris UIC HQ. The conference opened today bringing together more than 80 researchers and professionals from academia, industry and governmental organisations working in the field of the security of critical (information) infrastructure systems.

CRITIS is a global forum for researchers and practitioners to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, results, experiences and concerns in selected perspectives of Critical Information Infrastructure Security and Critical Infrastructure Protection at large.
In line with the CRITIS tradition, this year’s edition brings together, over the course of two-and-a-half days, experts from governments, regulators, scientists, academics, service providers, and other stakeholders in one conference to secure infrastructures.

The 11th edition of CRITIS is particularly important due to the recent events and terrorist attacks. We all know that the level of threats is particularly high in our countries. So beyond the operational aspects on field we have to develop the sharing of experience, to put in place networks of experts, to pay attention to the research projects, to be as ready as possible for today’s and tomorrow’s challenges.

Jean-Pierre Loubinoux, UIC Director General, opened the conference reminding the audience that

the security of people and goods has become a common production of all the partners under the leadership of the State authorities. Railway companies have to integrate this constraint within their development policies, within their quality of service policies. The clients are permanently asking for a coherent policy on safety, security, impact of extreme climatic conditions or natural disasters… in order to avoid any disruption of service during their travel.
Within this framework the role of infrastructure managers is crucial and due to the cascade effects between the sectors, it’s important to develop the exchanges and sharing of experience between the various infrastructure managers: rail, road, water, electricity supply …and obviously first of all as far as the critical infrastructures are concerned.
Critical Infrastructures are those physical and information technology facilities, networks, services and assets which, if disrupted or destroyed, would have a serious impact on the health, safety, security or economic well-being of citizens or the effective functioning of governments in European Union (EU) countries.
It’s obvious that our responsibility is to fight against current attacks, but also to address the new threats. Cyber threats are more and more important. The upsurge of the digital world is of course creating opportunities of progress but also represents new difficulties and threats and also has to be taken into account in our common work.
Security organises preventive measures in order to avoid the occurrence of negative events (from daily delinquency to most sophisticated terrorism), measures of precaution for mitigating the consequences of these events if they happen, intervention and crisis management when they happened, is perceived as a priority by clients and staff. We have to join our efforts in order to develop the most relevant policies and after that organise training and communication.

In addition, an IMPROVER workshop will be organised at UIC as an associated event to CRITIS. The Workshop: “Meeting public expectations in response to crises” – aims to discuss how infrastructure operators meet these requirements today and how this can be improved. The programme will begin with a short introduction to the project and then detail the findings from the project with regard to public tolerance to service disruption. Then some scenarios will be presented before discussion with the operators about public expectations and crisis management.

Next week will follow the second UIC Security Week for developing the UIC additional security programme decided by the UIC General Assembly in December 2015 and which addresses:

  • The interoperability of security related information for international trains
  • The various aspects of training and communication
  • The crisis management

As far as UIC is concerned, beyond CRITIS, we are involved in various research projects, recently concluded, still in progress or at the beginning:

  • SECRET, concluded in 2015, was dedicated to the electromagnetic attacks against signalling and is continuing in an internal UIC project led by the rail system department, named ARGUS
  • CIPRNet, Critical Infrastructure protection network is still ongoing and will be addressed after CRITIS at the end of this week
  • PREDICT, ongoing, is working on the cascade effects of important disruption in one sector, e.g. transport
  • CYRAIL will officially start in four days, on 14 October and will address the cyber attacks against automatic signalling and running of commuter trains during peak hours

United Kingdom: Passengers urged to plan ahead before major improvement works at Waterloo station next August

Network Rail and South West Trains are asking rail passengers to plan their journeys ahead of a major phase of works taking place at London’s Waterloo station on 5 – 28 August 2017.

The work is part of the ongoing £800m upgrade of Waterloo, Britain’s busiest station, which is the biggest investment in the station for 80 years.
Passenger journeys on the railway lines into Waterloo have more than doubled from 108 million in 1996 to 234 million today. The Waterloo & South West Upgrade will make more passenger journeys possible by providing longer trains with more seats, and a bigger, better Waterloo station – leading to a 30 per cent increase in the station’s peak-time capacity by 2019.

Extending platforms 1-4 at the station will make it possible for new 10-car trains to travel on the route between London Waterloo and Reading. Platforms 1-9 will need to close during August next year so that this work can take place, and as a result there will be significant temporary changes to train services across the South West Trains network.

“Work to deliver our Railway Upgrade Plan at Waterloo is progressing at a fantastic rate and this will continue behind the scenes, but from August 5 – 28 next year we will temporarily shift all of our services along the station so that we can lengthen platforms 1-4.
During this period we will be closing platforms 1-9, so services will use the other existing platforms as well as platforms 20-24, which will reopen during August’s changes. As there will be major impacts on services, we want everyone to have plenty of time to plan ahead while we invest for better journeys down the line,” said Stuart Kistruck, route managing director at Network Rail.

The impact of the changes will depend on where and when passengers are travelling. A timetable and more detailed travel advice will be published in the new year.

For an indication of the impact at each station, visit our Waterloo & South West Upgrade project page or South West Trains’ website.

New lease of life for Waterloo International Terminal

As part of the Waterloo & South West Upgrade, the five platforms of the former Waterloo International Terminal (WIT) – 20 to 24 – will be brought back into use, creating more space for passengers and trains at London Waterloo station.

Work on the former WIT has been taking place since March 2016, and will help to link the spacious terminal with the existing London Waterloo station.

Among the changes, the Victory Arch war memorial in Waterloo station will gain more prominence when a bridge is built to link it to a new concourse that will be created from the former WIT.

This new space will be opened up by removing the glazing and old departure boards that separate the former WIT from London Waterloo. The new area of concourse will be increased in size by partially filling in the railway lines of platforms 20 to 24.
