First class delivery – new RailDirector is on its way

The February edition of RailDirector is making its way to 2,000 of the rail industry’s most influential leaders and subscribers in the coming days.

Covering everything from track to train and including the latest rail news from the UK and abroad, this month’s magazine leads with an exclusive interview with Sir John Armitt, Chair of the National Infrastructure Commission. This is fresh from the release of the NIC’s Rail Needs Assessment, which will play a vital role in informing the government’s forthcoming Integrated Rail Plan.

It also features a fascinating look behind the scenes into the major work going on at the Port of Southampton to allow for longer freight trains. We talk to the three experts about leading the project through its final stages.

Editor Dean Bruce said: “There is always an enormous sense of pride when the latest RailDirector drops and February’s edition will be no different as it includes a wealth of exclusive interviews with some of the incredible people involved in the railways.

“I hope our readers enjoy the magazine which also features Dave Smale on working on the railways in Australia, the amazing work by Tracey Barber in inspiring the next generation of workers, and Merseyrail’s Neil Young discussing the challenge on taking on Tottenham Hotspur in the FA Cup.”

The magazine continues to grow in reputation, with an interview with Labour’s Shadow Secretary of State for Transport Jim McMahon, as well as Transport for London Commissioner Andy Byford and Scotland’s Transport and Infrastructure Secretary Michael Matheson contributing articles.

Dean added: “I would like to thank everyone who has contributed to February’s magazine. The wealth of stories just highlights the vast number of incredible people we have in the rail industry.”

The magazine also features Platform 1 – the first point of call for rail industry innovation – fixing the spotlight on a series of upcoming products, services and organisations that are set to transform the industry.

Christian Wiles, who leads the RBDPublications team, said: “It is really heartening to hear the positive comments from both those reading and featuring in the magazine.

“People are enjoying reading the features, but also acting on the amazing companies we have featured – showing a real sense of confidence and trust in what is appearing in RailDirector.

“Work is well underway for the March edition of the magazine and the advert spots are filling up quickly.”
