Reach, Riverside Court, Pride Park, Derby

We are well recognised as an industry with a lot of acronyms, but how well do you know your MTINs and M701Ds? 

This year we see the transition of fleet performance with a new metric and for fleet performance the heat is turning up.

Goodbye to the 3 minute buffer.  Hello to ‘real time railway’.   

For rolling stock operators and leasing companies, fleet performance and reliability just got even more interesting and for the supply chain, well, with change comes opportunity.

We are delighted to bring this Fleet Performance event to our members and wider industry, which will provide attendees from fleet operations as well as supply chain with a great opportunity to understand the changes and opportunities it can deliver, with a particular focus on the well loved Turbostar.

This half day event, in Derby will provide two sessions to bring you up to speed on this transition.

Session 1

Session 1 will deliver the context of fleet performance – vital to those supplying the rolling stock landscape,  and the changes to reporting.  Attendees will gain;

  • a clear understanding of the importance of rail industry performance and rolling stock performance management;
  • insight into a ROSCO approach to delivering good train and system performance;
  • an overview of the M701D changes and the impact on TOC performance and technical performance;
  • and an understanding of the 20 point plan.

We are delighted to welcome the following speakers

  • Neil Foster, Fleet Services Director, Porterbrook
  • Matthew Prosser, Asset Management Director, Angel Trains
  • Mark Molyneux, National Fleet Performance Manager, Rail Delivery Group
  • Bhavin Patel, National Fleet Performance Engineer, Rail Delivery Group

Session 2

Session 2 will consider a range of perspectives across this key topic including TOCs, the Turbostar User Group and other examples of where supply chain collaboration have delivered fleet performance improvements.

  • Matthew Cogle, Fleet Performance Manager, West Midlands Trains
  • Harry Gawler, Fleet Manager, Eversholt UK Rails Group
