Railway Heritage

Railway Heritage

The LocationSense digital platform helps tell the history of carriages and locomotives, the story of former railway workers, the sights and sounds of the engine sheds and even explain how signal boxes work by using in app games.

By using augmented reality which superimposes digital content on the user’s view of the real world we are able to bring the railway to live in front of the visitors eyes through apple and android phones or tablets.

Using proximity beacons enables unique content to be triggered as a visitor moves through a carriage, engine shed or a station. Wherever a train is located, we can now instantly tell the story of the locomotive, where it travelled, and the people who built it and now maintain it.

We have developed immersive games including digital treasure hunts where a visitor can travel by train to uncover clues to find hidden objects at or near each of the stations. By scanning real world items using the user’s phone or tablet camera hidden stories and objects are revealed which are added to the user’s collection. Once all clues have been discovered the player can be entered into a prize draw – providing a competitive experience and encouraging further visits.

By creating immersive digital experiences which complement the current steam experience we are able to enhance an already important visitor destination. Increase visitor numbers, the length of their stay, ticket purchases and repeat visits.
Digital innovation, providing engaging, entertaining and educational steam railway visitor experiences.
