Dear Colleague,

 

ELECTRONIC TRANSMISSION OF RULEBOOK MODULES & SUITABLE ELECTRONIC SCREEN SIZES

 

Gloucester Branch submitted two resolutions to the National Executive Committee both related to the new facility created by RSSB that allows railway workers to access the Railway Rulebook electronically.
