Lighting Up Locomotives


Lighting students from across the UK got a great taste of working under pressure – as part of a competition organised by the National Railway Museum.


As part of the National Railway Museum’s annual ‘Locos in a Different Light’ event, six teams of lighting students were invited to get involved in a competition to illuminate railway carriages with a total working time of less than two hours. Luckily, lighting specialists ETC were on hand to provide equipment and support to the teams. ETC’s Associate Regional


Manager for UK and Ireland, Jeremy Roberts,


brought a range of Selador Desire LED


fixtures and six lighting control desks.


He said: “I was really


impressed with the imagination and technical ability of the teams. Many of the students had seen ETC SmartFade and Congo jr desks before, but fewer had seen ETC’s recent Congo Kid and Element. The programming syntaxes would have been familiar to them, since they’re part of the Eos or Congo families, so they were soon up to speed.”

ETC Selador Desire comes in a range of models to ensure lighting designers get precisely the look they need. The Desire Fire fixture offers the warm red-orange-yellow palette, while the Desire Ice provides soulful shades of blue. Studio HD, Studio Tungsten and Studio Daylight provide three different ways of producing powerful white light; while Lustr+ and Vivid offer a vast colour range for spectrally balanced saturated and tinted light.


Ed Fagan, Curriculum Manager in the performing arts faculty at Amersham College, had the idea that a competition could provide the ideal stimulus for the design of a permanent lighting scheme, and so devised the Locos in a Different Light competition. This year’s winners from the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts gained not only the recognition of having won, but also a chance to drive a steam train. In a separate public vote, Rose Bruford also picked up an


honourable mention. Helen Ashby, Head of

Knowledge & Collections at the National Railway Museum, is


delighted by the way the event inspires students; "The competition gives students a unique opportunity to light a developing area of the museum and


potentially have their ideas incorporated into the long term plans for the space. We enjoyed seeing our collection brought to life through light and


welcomed over 1,000 visitors into the museum on Saturday evening to experience the displays."
