Ian Hyde, Engineering & Safety Director at Chiltern Railways, in collaboration with Andy Brodniewski and Ian Williams representing Porterbrook, will explain the key objectives and challenges overcome to achieve passenger trials and outline future opportunities for the application of hybrid technology
