  • photo
  • This is a free-to-join Zoom Icon event but please register in advance (see below)
  • Chris Page, Railfuture chair says: "Britain's railway faces its greatest threat since the Beeching Cuts in the 1960s. Because of COVID-19 patronage fell through the floor and has only partially recovered.
    "The government will not be willing to keep the railway afloat at vast cost indefinitely. Fare income from passengers is vital. The public must use the railway or risk losing it.
    "Rail travel must be safe, value for money, punctual, convenient and enjoyable.
    "We have five speakers from the rail industry representing organisations that can offer expert advice and/or take the necessary actions to encourage the public to use our railway."

About Railfuture

Railfuture is an independent, voluntary group representing rail users in Britain with 20,000 affiliated and individual members. It is not funded by train companies, political parties or trade unions, and all members have an equal say.

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. In short, a better rail service and a bigger rail system for both passengers and freight.

Railfuture is pro-rail but not anti-road or anti-air. However, we campaign for a switch from road and air to rail. We do not interfere in the running of the railway - we campaign for the quality and range of services provided, not how they are delivered. We are the only champion of all rail users.

Railfuture is the campaigning name of Railfuture Ltd.

A not-for-profit Company Limited by Guarantee.

Registered in England and Wales No. 05011634.

Registered Office: Edinburgh House, 1-5 Bellevue Road, Clevedon, North Somerset BS21 7NP (for legal correspondence only).

All other correspondence to 24 Chedworth Place, Tattingstone, Suffolk IP9 2ND
