Running the railway

We keep Britain moving.

The railway brings together families and friends, and opens up communities to opportunities: jobs; clients and customers. It helps businesses and the national economy to grow – and it’s our job to look after it.

Maintaining and operating our rail network 24/7 is an important part of what we do. We’re making sure your railway can get you where you need to go safely and reliably, whilst planning ahead and doing everything we can to improve journeys for the future.
