The Rail Engineer of the Year category at this year’s RailStaff Awards was sponsored by Morson Group, and saw London Underground’s Dominic Trueman win 2014’s Rail Engineer of the Year title.

The RailStaff Awards, which is supported by Network Rail and the Rail Alliance, is an annual industry event recognising the hard work, courage and professionalism of the men and women who deliver Britain’s railway every day.

Now in its eighth year, the circus-themed 2014 event was held at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena on October 25.

Gary Smithson, associate director at Morson Group, believed the Rail Engineer of the Year Award was a natural fit for the business. He said: “Engineering is in our DNA – we have worked in the rail industry for over 40 years and are delighted to recognise the talent in the industry, and congratulate Dominic on his success.”

Dominic has been recognised for developing an innovative approach to the issue of track wear which will help ensure the long term health of the world’s original metro system.

To reduce the wheel spin effect from sudden acceleration, Dominic worked with train manufacturers to reconfigure the traction package. He and his team developed alternative rail head profiles which change the position of wheel to rail contact in order to reduce rolling contact fatigue and wheel squeal.

George Noorden of London Underground said: “Dominic, rather than taking the comfortable position of carrying out his assigned role supporting the existing processes that limit the risk of failures and delays, is leading innovative engineering solutions.”

Dominic Trueman has achieved this exceptional engineering output within the first year of managing his team of four staff. During this time, he has also supervised three trainee engineering graduates and work experience students.
