Didcot TVSC will also then control from Paddington buffer stops to Patchway, where it fringes with South Wales Control Centre. While this may not be as long as trains remaining under (say) RETB control in the windswept wilds of Scotland in terms of distance or time, is it the longest number of signal sections that a train remains in one control centre?


Rugby might be a contender

I would think Motherwell would come a fair way up the list.

Motherwell and Waverley both around the 80-90 mile mark, I think Paddington - Bristol is further?

I was under the impression that Motherwell was nearer 105 miles but I may be wrong.

Coming straight up WCML, about 85 miles from first to last signal on Motherwell.

It appears that the current works will make parallel departures from Parkway towards Temple Meads and South Wales possible - will it also allow parallel moves the other way?

If you mean into Parkway the answer is yes.

In fact, the new layout and signalling will allow three parallel movements in or out at the West end of Bristol Parkway station, one to/from South Wales, one to/from Avonmouth and one to/from Bristol Temple Meads in any to/from combination.
