Back for seconds: The new RailDirector is on its way

The second RailDirector has left the printers and is on its way to 2,000 rail industry directors, leaders and magazine subscribers.

The first edition of the newest rail magazine on the market received fantastic feedback, featuring exclusive interviews with the likes of Sir Peter Hendy, Andy Lord, Maggie Simpson and Adeline Ginn MBE.

Now the second offering from RBDPublications, part of the Business Daily Group, which includes, is about to drop at doorsteps throughout the UK.

Again, the aim is to bring industry influencers, decision-makers and supply chain partners closer together, covering everything from track to train.

An exclusive photograph below gives a small insight into what people can expect from October’s edition.

Editor Dean Bruce said: “I am immensely proud of what we have achieved with Issue 2 and I hope those receiving a copy will enjoy the magazine.

“I can’t thank our contributors enough. There’s a mix of powerful features really highlighting the wonderful work of those involved in the railways.”

This latest issue includes an interview with outgoing Arriva UK Trains MD Chris Burchell about the end of the franchising system, Pete Waterman OBE on his passion for the railways and Network Rail’s Rajinder Pryor bravely opens up about how the railways helped her find her voice.

David McLoughlin, Chief Executive of the Business Daily Group, said: “My concern, having received such plaudits about the first edition, was the risk of ‘second album syndrome’, but I hope you agree our excellent team have created something very special again.

“Our aim continues to be to cover as much as we can from different parts of the industry, including as many aspects from track to train as possible, as well as giving supply chain partners a platform to promote who they are and what they do.”

The magazine is the second to come under Business Daily Group’s RBDPublications, which is being led by Christian Wiles, who joined the company in July.

He said: “Like all industries, these are tough times for the rail industry, which makes it all the more heartening the support we’ve received from advertisers to produce the magazine.

“We continue to be overwhelmed by those wanting to advertise in the magazine and the impact it has had on those who advertised in the first edition.

“We are well underway with November’s edition with advertising slots filling up quickly.”
