Published fortnightly by Bauer Media, RAIL is the market-leading magazine covering Britain’s railways.
Launched in 1981, originally as a bi-monthly magazine, RAIL is designed to be the first choice for anyone interested in today’s railway, whatever their reason. RAIL’s second-to-none news coverage is given context by its top-quality opinion, comment and analysis pieces from Britain’s leading expert commentators.
RAIL’s news and features coverage embraces the full spectrum of activity, from Government policy and involvement, to operations, maintenance and services provided by Network Rail, train operators and the wider industry. Light rail and tramways are also covered in a magazine which campaigns hard for a fair deal for Britain’s railway.
RAIL’s news pages are the best place to find out about new developments of all kinds, from station reopenings to plans for electrification and new High Speed routes around the country.
In support of the magazine, RAIL’s own dedicated business events team produces a range of high-value events for the rail industry. These include the railway ‘Oscars’ – The National Rail Awards (which celebrated its tenth anniversary in 2009); also the annual National Rail Conference, plus The RAIL 100 Breakfast Club in London and Glasgow. RAIL also produces the annual and much sought-after BRITAIN'S RAILWAYS. This annual comprehensive directory and guide is dedicated to today’s railway and it lays bare how it is structured, how it works, what the relationships are between industry participants and their regulators and Government and who the key players are. This ‘big picture’ information is accompanied by all the names, addresses and contact details you need to navigate this complex business.
