This question is answered in this article on Rail Technology Magazine.

As yet, there is no Wikipedia entry.

  1. I got into a discussion on LinkedIn about this. I can think of two test centres in Germany and the Czech Republic that offer more comprehensive facilities than this planned one for Wales.
    Will rail manufacturers ship their vehicles to the UK for testing? Not if they’ve got an overland route they won’t and want the variety of power supply and other options available in the two places I mentioned. I should also mention that stock movements of test and non-commissioned stock on BR metals is generally more restrictive than on the Continent
    Yes it can be a National Centre of Excellence and a valuable asset to handle the missing facilities at Old Dalby ; but a global one, please……
