Rail Business Daily Enters Agreement to Acquire the Rail Alliance

Rail Business Daily has entered into agreement with University of Birmingham to acquire the Rail Alliance

What this means for Rail Alliance Members:

This is really good news for members who can take advantage of a dynamic combination of services designed to help organisations position themselves to win more business and grow in line with business aspiration.


Dear Rail Alliance Member

I hope that you are well. Just a brief introduction. My name is David McLoughlin and I am the owner and CEO of Rail Business Daily. Some of you may remember me as the former finance and commercial director of Network Rail IP. By now you should have received information sent out by BCRRE, University of Birmingham announcing that Rail Business Daily has acquired the Rail Alliance – with members transferring to the RBD Community.

As a member of the Rail Alliance, I offer you a very warm welcome into the RBD Community where you will join +1,000 other companies that are actively using the benefits provided to support with profile raising opportunities, new business development, and to ultimately grow their business in rail.

The ongoing growth and success of Rail Business Daily is something we are exceptionally proud of, and we look forward to working with you and your team as we continue to thrive together. Eli Rees-King and the wider RBD Community team will provide you with all the information and support you need, and I know that they are as delighted as I am to welcome you onboard.  It is important to us that we make the transition from the Rail Alliance into the RBD Community as seamless as possible and, on that note, you will be pleased to hear that we have already made a start on creating an online presence for your business within our powerful RBD Directory. We aim to have all of the micro-site entries live by 31 December 2021 in time for your membership renewal. This will help you to enjoy huge backlink benefits from our large online following.

We are keen to retain Rail Alliance’s links with the University and to keep membership rates at an affordable level – while continuing to maintain the high standards you would expect, plus all the additional benefits provided to you through the Rail Business Daily platform.

You will receive a separate email from our accounts department with your renewal notice (£350 +VAT) for the year (less than £1 per day), which not only offers you great value, but also all the benefits you would anticipate from being part of a proactive and thriving community. One change you will notice, that will take effect immediately, is that we will no longer be running a tiered membership option as we believe that all companies in the membership should have equal access to the benefits, regardless of business size, and at a very low rate. It would really help us if you can confirm who best to send the renewal invoice to in your team by clicking the link here.

We are very much looking forward to welcoming you into the RBD Community, however, please do not hesitate to contact either Eli ( or Rachel Woodman ( if you have any questions about the transition or your membership. At this early stage, we are delighted with the positive feedback we have received about the acquisition of the Rail Alliance and continued collaboration with the University of Birmingham, and it is with great excitement that Rail Business Daily continues to go from strength-to-strength in providing the sector with solutions geared for results.Services within the RBD Community include: AdvisoryMarketing Services, online and offline media ([[http://www.railbusinessdaily,com]http://www.railbusinessdaily,com] www.railbusinessdaily,com, Rail InsiderRail Director and Inside Track), white/blue collar recruitment and events; all of which exist to support your business in rail. The Rail Business Daily website gets c10m visits a year and our tender alert and work winning support is known to be second to none.  

With the festive period fast approaching, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you a very happy Christmas and a successful and healthy 2022. I hope to meet you in the New Year.

Best wishes


David McLoughlin
