Sir Peter Hendy CBE, Mark Carne and Paul Plummer to speak at RAIL 100 Breakfast Club

The RAIL 100 Breakfast Club is a networking club for senior executives in the rail industry

Secretary of State for Transport Chris Grayling said on December 6 as he made a commitment to put passengers at the heart of the railway, “I intend to start bringing back together the operation of track and train on our railways. Our railway is much better run by one joined-up team of people. They don’t have to work for the same company. They do have to work in the same team.”

Grayling announced creation of the first new integrated rail operation, aligning the incentives between the management of infrastructure and the operation of trains. But how do Network Rail and the operators see this working?

On February 23 the RAIL 100 Breakfast Club is bringing together a key group of three top executives who will lead the effort to make this initiative happen – and work effectively. They are:


Sir Peter Hendy CBE Mark Carne Paul Plummer
Network Rail Chairman Sir Peter Hendy CBE Network Rail Chief Executive Mark Carne Rail Delivery Group Chief Executive Paul Plummer


In a special departure from the usual format at the RAIL 100 Breakfast Club, Hendy, Carne and Plummer will take to the podium together to discuss how these new regional operating boards and faster devolution will actually work in practice to make the railway better for its customers.

This is the first time these key executives will have addressed this issue in an open forum and the RAIL 100 Breakfast Club is pleased and proud to be the host. Please join us!

Please note that places are limited and are being taken up rapidly. Don't miss out - join now.
