Nanjing Institute of Railway Technology Collaborates with SafeRail on Signalling solutions
24th April 2014 - Nanjing, China – SafeRail, the Signalling and Control/Command Systems engineering company who managed the Tram-Train Nantes Chateaubriand project - put successfully into revenue service in February 2014 - is studying concrete common projects after the signature of the Memorandum of Understanding earlier this week on 23th of April. The Memorandum of Understanding follows several months of detailed discussions on the collaboration between the NIRT and SafeRail.
The NIRT and SafeRail are working jointly on technology and services projects where NIRT provides the expertise and power of a world class Research Center, and SafeRail provides its expertise in Signalling System engineering. The collaboration began in June 2013 with initial contacts which showed a perfect complementarity in activities, allowing the identification of new opportunities for both entities.
“The MoU marks the first collaboration between the NIRT and SafeRail,” said Didier Barbaud, CEO of SafeRail. “We believe this collaboration will be extremely valuable for both of us as we build innovative signalling solutions answering perfectly clients’ needs”
The NIRT-SafeRail association to design new solutions, will be focused on evaluating new technologies and packaging them into solution and services oriented systems.
“We are happy to start this cooperation with SafeRail, especially this year which is the 50th anniversary of the diplomatic relations between France and China” said M. Shenglang Liu, Vice-President of NIRT. “We officialize here the start of a mutual benefit relationship on Railway and Urban Transit activities”.
SafeRail continuously puts efforts on innovative, safe and efficient engineering activities. The Tram-Train Nantes Chateaubriand is the latest and best demonstration of the company abilities to manage projects where innovation is the challenging part of the system to design, deploy and maintain. SafeRail also support its customer in high speed lines or conventional lines solutions, by providing its expertise in Design, Safety, V&V, testing, maintenance and training.
Work will focus first on services oriented solutions, followed by a first project application of the common effort on signalling systems with efficiency, safety and RAM as targets at the earliest stages of the project.

Why trains run to the left?
As everybody knows it, it is in Great Britain where was born the first railway, and in this country, the diligences ran to the left.
And why did the diligences run to the left ? It comes from a very distant time when the valiant knights, who were doubtless mainly right-wing moved to the left to be able to assail deftly with the sword in the right hand every hostile rider coming to their meeting...
And why, then, do not all the cars do not drive to the left ? There, it is a long story, with Napoleon, sputters, and more and more....
An exception however, which was quite justly reminded me by Alain Fennerich, trains always run to the right in the regions of Metz and Strasbourg, since the Ex AL (Alsace - Lorraine under German dominion by 1885). Were the German knights left-handed thus mainly...?
