Nexus Learning Centre
Electrification Case Study
Nexus commissioned the installation of a new Nexus Learning Centre (NLC), located on the old South Shields sidings, to enable personnel training on Nexus Rail infrastructure and rolling stock.
The new facility includes a pair of tracks terminating in a new training facility building, which includes service pits and overhead walkways for access to the Nexus trains. At the rear of the facility is an unconnected ‘mock-up’ section, which includes a short two track section of railway with Overhead Live Equipment (OLE) for maintenance training purposes.
