Thales Ground Transportations Systems UK TPWS & AWS Demonstration Layout

Manufactured to specific requirements supplied by Thales Ground Transportations Systems UK this TPWS (Track Protection Warning System) and AWS (Automatic Warning System) Demonstration Layout is designed to simulate TPWS and AWS in action. Model TPWS Grids and AWS Ramps hide small micro reed switches (located transversely within the track) which are triggered by magnets located on the locomotive to simulate the operation of the TPWS grid and AWS ramps. Connections from the layout to actual TPWS and AWS hardware simulate both TPWS Overspeed and SPAD situations (Signal Passed At Danger) and AWS operation. Three aspect signals manufactured by CR Signals are used on the model together with a large LED cluster replica three aspect signal to demonstrate signal status. Corporate identity is maintained throughout the layout with company logos on structures, road vehicles and railway rolling stock. This layout is designed for both in house and exhibition demonstration.
