Established in 1993, the Rail Forum is a national industry body with strong regional connections.

Based at the heart of one of the largest clusters of rail companies in the world our members span the whole industry from global corporations to micro SMEs, asset owners to manufacturers, digital solutions providers to passenger and freight operators.

An inclusive, not for profit organisation, our member companies are drawn from all parts of the UK.

I am honoured to have taken up the role of Chair of the Rail Forum during 2022. Our industry is facing huge change as we welcome customers back following the pandemic and prepare for a new era under Great British Railways. Our members are our focus, and we have ambitious plans that will see us continuing to develop the support and activities we offer to you as well as further deepening our relationships with key policymakers on your behalf.
