The second coming: RailDirector the sequel is online

Click here to read the second online edition of RailDirector magazine.

Building upon the success of the inaugural September issue this latest offering from RBDPublications, part of the Business Daily Group, covers everything from track to train.

Several thousand copies have been making their way by post to rail industry directors, leaders and subscribers over the last few days, but now you can read the online version for free by clicking here.

Editor Dean Bruce said: “We’ve already received some excellent feedback from the second printed issue of the magazine, so we hope everyone now enjoys reading our online version.

“The second edition continues where the first one left off, highlighting the people and businesses who are playing a part in transforming railways for the better.

“We’re only as good as the stories that are told to us, so as ever, a big thank you to everyone who has contributed to this issue who between them have really helped to make this a special edition.”

The cover story features an exclusive interview with former Arriva UK Trains MD Chris Burchell on his reaction to the end of rail franchising.

Rajinder Pryor from Network Rail has also bravely spoken about how the railway helped find her voice, which she is now using to inspire others.

She said: “My story is all about self-empowerment. I took control to change the course of my own life. There are lessons for us all to draw from.”

RailDirector magazine is part of a group which also includes the hugely popular newsletter, delivering more than 70 stories a week to 50,000 rail industry professionals.

Christian Wiles, Managing Director of RBDPublications, said: “We’re all incredibly proud of the second edition of the magazine and we are delighted to be able to make it available online for everyone working in the rail industry to read.

“I’d like to thank all the organisations that have supported the first two editions as the magazine just wouldn’t be possible without their backing.

“It has been incredibly heartening to hear the response from advertisers and the positive impact being in the magazine has had on businesses.

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