Travel By Train social media competition

Terms and conditions for Travel by Train competition

We’d love to see your photos of the railway and experiences travelling by train, whether you’re a regular commuter, a day tripper or live near the railway.

That’s why we’ve created the #TravelByTrain social media competition. It’s chance for us to celebrate and share your fantastic content with everyone. We’ll choose one winning photo each month to feature as our header photo on all our social media channels. So get snapping!
