© 2017 by Taylor and Francis Group, LLC. Simulation is a comparatively new phenomenon in the rail signalling domain. At the time of the Ladbroke Grove accident in 1999, only two rail signalling simulators existed on the GB rail network. Following the accident, Lord Cullen’s inquiry report made a recommendation for simulators to take a stronger role in support of signaller training (Cullen, 2000). He argued that the use of simulators facilitated better training of signallers in the wide variety of contingency situations that they may be faced with on the live railway. The ability to rehearse their actions in response to emergency events could only increase their ability to act appropriately in a real emergency. Following this recommendation, the use of simulators in signallers’ initial and refresher training was greatly increased in Great Britain.
