True North Rail


Company overview

True North Rail are a team of rail engineers on a mission to bring the rapidly growing technology used in computer gaming to the rail sector.

In 2020, we secured a competitive tender to deliver the signal sighting model for a major re-signalling scheme. In 2022, our largest project to date, in partnership with WSP, to provide a signal sighting VR model and driver route learning package for the Network Rail Crewe Programme.

We are a collaborative and flexible business, and work with like-minded suppliers to deliver high quality outputs to our clients. Our approach means we can efficiently support projects ranging from a small station change to a major infrastructure programme.

Bring your rail project to life with TrueSight™

We use the latest VR technology to build an exact digital replica of your rail project, enabling you to plan your project more quickly and efficiently, drastically improve on-site safety, and make cost savings at every step.

The operational railway is an inherently dangerous environment. The requirement to avoid carrying out work ‘on or near the line’ when trains are running means that access to site can be severely restricted. TrueSight™ solves the problem by giving you access-all-areas to your construction site in virtual reality instead.

Using your CAD and GIS data, we build a highly realistic and accurate digital 3D model of your project site and supply the tools you need to make the most of its purpose. It comes with the ability to simulate various scenarios to help you make informed decisions throughout the lifespan of your project.
