Who we are

We own and operate the railway infrastructure in England, Wales and Scotland on behalf of the nation. That’s 20,000 miles of track, 30,000 bridges, tunnels and viaducts and the thousands of signals, level crossings and stations. We also manage rail timetabling and 20 of the largest stations in England, Scotland and Wales.

We work round-the-clock to provide a safe, reliable experience for the millions using Europe’s fastest-growing railway each and every day.

What we do

The work we do in running and improving Britain’s railway is incredibly diverse, challenging and ambitious. 

We work with lots of different partners across the industry – so why not read a little more about how we work collaboratively to deliver 4.8 million journeys a day for our customers.
