First RailDirector of 2021 is on its way

Over 2,000 exclusive rail industry leaders and subscribers will be receiving the first RailDirector magazine of 2021 in the coming days.

This month’s magazine leads with Network Rail’s Ellie Burrows who talks to us about her incredible work leading the £2.2 billion transformation of Anglia’s railways.

It also features the thoughts of the Railway Industry Association’s Kate Jennings and Neil Walker on how to ensure the UK’s supply chain is prepared for new export opportunities following Brexit.

Editor Dean Bruce said: “I hope our readers enjoy the first edition of RailDirector in 2021. In this latest edition we highlight some of the amazing work taking place in the rail industry during these unusual times and of course the incredible people who are making that work happen.

“As well as the cover feature with Ellie and looking at the opportunities now we have left the European Union, we have also taken an in depth look at the new working relationships between the supply chain and Network Rail; and the technology driving earthworks asset management.”

The magazine, which covers everything from track to train, also features the Chief Executive of the Office of Rail and Road John Larkinson, Northern Powerhouse Rail’s Tim Wood and Nasir Khan from Muslims in Rail.

Dean said: “It might be a new year, but there is no slowdown for the rail industry, or us as an organisation as we carry on where we left off in 2020 with amongst other things our exciting plans for our second magazine.

“I would like to thank everyone who has contributed to our fifth edition of RailDirector. There are some great stories and a lot of reasons why people should be optimistic about the future.”

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

Christian Wiles, who leads the RBDPublications team, said: “We are really pleased with the latest edition of RailDirector and the breadth of strength of contributors, from both an editorial and advertorial point of view.

“We have received fantastic feedback about the magazine and we are proud to be helping companies work closer together. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you would like to talk about how we can help to tell your story.”
