Welcome to Railfuture

►►Amber Rudd, the MP for Hastings and Rye, arranged a Rail Summit in Hastings on Monday 31st March, which was attended by The Rt Hon Patrick McLoughlin, Secretary of State for Transport. There she presented him with this 'Shock and Ore' picture commissioned by Railfuture to highlight the need for faster more frequent rail services to spark economic growth. Railfuture is campaigning for electrification of the whole Marshlink line between Hastings and Ashford International, to accelerate services and improve reliability and capacity. Currently electrified track from Hastings towards Ashford only reaches as far as Ore, the first station. Fine art prints of the painting are available from the Railfuture shop. Full story at High Speed Hastings.◀◀

Railfuture

Railfuture is the UK's leading independent organisation campaigning for better rail services for passengers and freight. Railfuture is a voluntary group representing rail users, with 20,000 affiliated and individual members. It is not affiliated to or funded by train companies, political parties or trade unions, and uses one-member one-vote democracy.

Railfuture campaigns for cheap and convenient rail services for everyone; better links for buses, bikes and pedestrians; policies to get more heavy lorries on to rail; new lines, stations and freight terminals – a better rail service and a bigger rail system for both passengers and freight. Our volunteer members in branches and around 300 local rail user groups campaign to get stations and lines reopened, and services and facilities improved, for the benefit of the community, economy and environment.

Over the past 50 years we have played a major part in getting over 370 new and reopened stations and over 500 miles of route to join the network.
