Does anyone know of a way to convert Network Rail Engineering Line Reference linear positional data into OSM Eastings and Northings En Masse?

I have a large excel spreadsheet of railway signals which are referenced with ELR and a miles and yards position.
I need to convert these into Eastings and Northings (or any other freely exchangable map data). Problem is, the systems I have access to are incredibly archaic. I can look up one ELR location at a time and read off on the map the position. This is going to take me way to long to convert the thousands that I have.
I realise that this is an incredibly niche question, but you've surprised me in the past.
