"Mauzin" Train Tests

Testing & Commissioning Manager acting as on-board Tester in Charge providing instructions to the Engineers and the Pilotman in the front diesel locomotive during the runs of the SNCF "Mauzin" track recording car.

The "Mauzin" was transported diesel hauled from France via the Channel Tunnel and the CTRL-Section 1 operational railway in order to verify the geometry of the track system before anymore tamping adjustments could be scheduled.

The "Mauzin Train" then returned on the project on two occasions and in particular just before the start of the Dynamic tests in March 2007.
