    Does anyone know if / what the difference is between an Operative and Trackman post? I've applied for a Trackman post which as far as I can tell seems to have the same job description as Operative posts.

    With signalling that is carried out from Rail Operating Centres, is that ETCS? Which has replaced Absolute Block signalling on a lot of lines, but AB is still in use alongside ETCS? ...or am I way off.
