Railbusinessdaily.com – telling the stories that matter most to the UK rail industry

The numbers are just staggering. An average of 4.8 million journeys a day from over 2,500 stations, covering 20,000 miles of track and crossing 30,000 bridges, tunnels and viaducts.

That is the UK’s rail network, with 240,000 people each playing a vital role in the success of its running and its transformation in the days, months and years ahead.

It is for those reasons why the rail industry, relied on so heavily by so many people, is such an exciting and fast-paced one to be involved in.

Here at railbusinessdaily.com we follow the journey of the railways, speaking to the industry leaders and telling the stories that matter to those involved in the sector.

We are at a time of great change, one of great investment and one of even greater opportunity. Network Rail is spending £47.9 billion on the railways in the five years up until 2024, and we have major projects such as the HS2, Crossrail and the upgrade of the TransPennine route underway.

There is also the imminent Williams Review – one that will reveal recommendations for reform that prioritise passengers’ and taxpayers’ interests.

Technology will be playing a major role in the transformation of the railways. News of the East Coast Main line to become Britain’s first mainline digital rail link is just the start to introducing digital signalling on the entire rail network.

It is that grasping of the latest technology and the collaboration for innovation that will continue to see the UK railways lead the way throughout the world. A zero-emission machine for removing and replacing rails and the UK’s first hydrogen-powered train are among just a few projects being developed. They are just two of dozens to benefit from the Department for Transport and InnovateUK’s First of A Kind Funding.

At the same time a lot of hard work is taking place to highlight the incredible career opportunities and a job for life that awaits in the rail industry. The Birmingham Centre for Railway Research and Education continues its outstanding work, while partnerships between Siemens Mobility and Selby College, and Walsall College and Balfour Beatty VINCI are allowing students to work on some of the biggest rail projects in the coming years.

The railways never stop moving and neither do in telling the stories. The articles we publish reach 40,000 rail professionals six days a week. Let railbusinessdaily.com take you on the journey of the railway news that matters most to the industry.

Client testimonials

  • Katherine Anchorena Senior Marketing and Events Manager
    RBD provides a unique platform for the Railway Industry Association (RIA), to reach out to the wider industry and promote our flagship events and rail campaigns, helping to support our aim of representing the UK rail supply community to key decision makers and influencers.
  • Dave Tilmouth Head of Marketing Communications
    We’ve been working with RBD for several months. Initially we shared content for their regular e-mails before moving onto week-long ‘takeover’ slots. With these we received top billing for five days for articles of our choice, and we have been very impressed with the results.
  • Adeline Ginn MBE Group Strategy and Legal Director at CPMS
    Rail Business Daily provides us with a window to effectively reach out to our rail colleagues across the sector. It has given Women in Rail a platform to discuss and champion the importance of a genderdiverse workforce and of the need to bridge the current skills gap if we are to build a better future for rail.
  • Raj Sinha Former Managing Director at SSE Enterprise Rail, now Group Managing Director at SWGR
    The RBDBusinessServices team is fantastic and makes a phenomenal difference from a profile raising and business development perspective. They know the rail industry incredibly well and can help organisations to articulate and visualise their business in the most powerful and impactful way. I have worked with Simon and his team extensively over the last two decades and can’t speak highly enough about the positive financial difference they make.
  • Craig Purcell Managing Director
    We have used RBD recruitment services on a number of occasions. Each time, we have found the ideal candidate. Brilliant service.
  • Lucy Edgar Marketing and Communications
    Rail Business Daily is a great platform to communicate all manner of rail industry news. It’s our ‘go to’ for the freshest, most up to date news on all key industry developments.
  • Keven Parker Rail Director and Founder of RIN
    Since the foundation of RIN just over three years ago, the event has continued to grow. Railbusinessdaily.com has been instrumental in making sure that there are a great mix of exhibitors to the event and, through the different ways in which they’ve promoted the events, we’ve also experienced impressive levels of footfall.
