4.5m Mobile Staff Training Vehicle
This vehicle is custom built for Southern Rail and provides a unique mobile training facility for their staff. The unit drastically cuts travel time for trainee staff by allowing Souther Rail to drive to them and train them all in one place.
The van was produced using a combination of custom-made furnishings, made by Masters, and parts taken from a real train carriage. Our skilled craftsmen were able to create the perfect environment for on-site staff training. The van follows the colour scheme of Southern Rail and the cab has been sprayed, while the main body has a full vinyl wrap. The general shape of the body has also been modified to continue the train theme with styled wheel arches.
The interior of the van has several features which were taken directly from a Southern Rail train carriage. The seating, carpet and table were all provided by Southern Rail and we designed and manufactured items such as the luggage rack and leaflet display unit to match the train interior theme. We also produced the block seating, storage units and surfaces to blend in.
The commercial, double door entrance takes inspiration from real train doors and are of high quality and are very secure. The window is also inspired by train windows and is one-way to provide a private space inside. We aimed to make the training unit as light and comfortable as possible and incorporated translucent ceiling panels to maximise the amount of natural light. The interior lighting of the van is designed to replicate that of a train too.
Inside the van are several media components to aid Southern Rail staff training. This includes a TV screen at the far end - clearly visible from the seating area. A media player is cleverly hidden in the cupboards below the TV, allowing Southern Rail to play training videos. On the wall adjacent to the TV screen there is an LED scrolling screen that replicates those found onboard Southern Rail trains. For training purposes we also fitted a Southern Rail interactive computer, with a branded stand.
