This edition of the journal is dedicated to the lifetime work of Professor John Wilson (1951-2013) who has been described as the 'father of rail human factors'. His work was instrumental in the development of tools used routinely, worldwide, to predict workloads on signallers. He was a well known figure in the field of ergonomics and human factors and many of our teachings in South Africa have been based on his work. He started working at Loughborough University in 1974 and joined the University of Nottingham in 1983 during which time he also worked for periods at the University of California (1987-1989) and the University of New South Wales (2006-2008). He will be remembered for his exceptional contribution to the field and our heartfelt sympathies are extended to his work colleagues and family.
