Director, Doc Frank Rail Services

Dr Frank Heibel

‘Doc Frank’, as he is widely known in the railway industry, is one of Australia’s leading strategists and thought leaders for high performance signalling technologies and their game-changing effects on urban railway systems. He has advised railway organisations in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and overseas on the improvement of their operations by utilising modern automated signalling, which enables step-change improvements in transport capacity without expensive building of additional railway lines. His newsletter, blog and training courses demystify the perception of signalling as a ‘dark art’ and help wider parts of the railway industry understand the fundamentals and benefits of modern signalling.
