networkrail-placeholderThe show follows railway workers on the East Coast Main Line as they deal with major incidents which are causing disruption on the railway, carry out engineering works and help passengers at stations.

In tonight’s episode, Emma, who is from Salisbury and has worked for Network Rail for seven years, is shown using a thermal imaging camera from the Network Rail helicopter to spot potential problems with the track.

Emma said: “There’s so much that Network Rail does behind the scenes to keep the railway working smoothly that most people just don’t see.“We use the helicopter to carry out all types of work. We use a thermal imaging camera which is shown in the documentary. This allows us to find any potential faults and fix them before they cause problems, such as delays for passengers.

“We also use the helicopter to map the whole of the route, as well as to look for trespassers in partnership with the British Transport Police.“Every day is different and I’m excited to show people what I get up to. I’ve told my family and friends that I’m going to be on TV and they can’t wait to see it; I think my Mum has told the whole village!”
