Our Railway's Future
We've got great educational resources, developed with teachers and pupils, about electrification on the railway, level crossings and railway safety.
The safety of people on and around the railway is our priority. Education is key, especially for young people.
Rail Life, our initiative for young people, provides teachers, professionals and parents with resources about rail safety issues.
The materials match curriculum areas and deliver Ofsted teaching requirements.
