About Us

A little bit about us

Rail Media, creating opportunities to connect...

We are Rail Media and we create opportunities to connect - whether it’s connecting you to industry news, with like-minded professionals or even with that ideal candidate for a role in your company. We keep you connected with the latest developments and projects within the industry, through reading one of our magazines or by attending one of our many events.

Rail Media has the rail industry covered - here’s how:


RailStaff Magazine

...focuses on the people within the rail industry, their activities and challenges. It includes the regular monthly features that our 175,000 readers tell us they want - from safety and training to people moves and the latest projects and initiatives. Distributed to stations, depots and academies up and down the country, RailStaff can be found on desks and tables throughout the industry.

Rail Engineer

...is written by engineers, for engineers. Our writers visit factories, worksites, stations and depots all around the UK to meet with specialist engineers, bringing our readers news of the latest projects and developments every month. In addition, we also report on cutting-edge rolling stock innovations and on-board technologies that enhance performance, safety, energy efficiency and the passenger experience.

Global Rail News

...provides daily updates about the rail industry worldwide, from the awarding of orders for new fleets of trains to the completion of major infrastructure projects. Through a weekly newsletter, we provide news and analysis directly to thousands of subscribers in all corners of the world.



...has a growing database and excellent long term relationships with the recruitment industry. Alongside this, Railway People offers a wealth of fantastic advertising options allowing you to get the best return from your marketing. As all great recruiters are aware, it is attracting the right candidate for your roles that is important, so we offer a range of helpful bundles to help you do just that.


...offers a place for the Global Rail Industry to advertise its non-UK Rail vacancies. Whether you want to reach rail professionals in Asia, the Far East, Australasia, the Americas, Africa or Europe, Rail Job Stem is the place to do it, easily and effectively.


The RailStaff Awards

…recognise the work that people do to go the extra mile for colleagues, passengers and the general public. They celebrates the success of individuals and teams and allows the industry to say “thank you” to those who make rail what it is today, from drivers to cleaners, engineers to station staff, back-office administrators to infrastructure maintainers. You can nominate your colleagues, whether they have saved a life, managed a large-scale project or just done their job particularly well this year, and send us stories of lives saved, careers turned around and adversity conquered. This recognition of our people in the national RailStaff Awards is the event of the year and one not to be missed.

The Rail Partnership Awards

…give Network Rail, working in partnership with Rail Media, the opportunity to recognise organisations which are helping to deliver a better railway for a better Britain. The 2018 Rail Partnership Awards bring the supply chain together to celebrate the very best of 2017’s achievements in the rail industry. 14 awards are open for nominations and only their winners will be considered for the coveted Supplier of the Year Award, presented to the organisation that has, in the judges’ opinion, demonstrated excellence and best practice in all areas.


The Rail Asset Management Summit

...moves the discussion on from the last three Rail BIM Summits. As the rail industry moves into a more digital world, now is the time to understand how rail businesses can benefit from the relationship between BIM and asset management. A panel of experts will share their knowledge and experience so that delegates can learn how assets are managed throughout the rail industry.

The Rail Technology Summit

...takes the conversation which started at 2017’s Digital Rail Summit and broadens the subject into one of Rail Technology. Speakers from throughout the industry, from rolling stock to train operations and infrastructure management, will look at how the use of innovative technology in rail is bringing about a revolution in efficiency and reliability.

The Rail Safety Summit

...has brought rail safety professionals together for the last ten years. It provides a unique opportunity for them to network and discuss the latest concerns and developments while hearing from those involved with developing new systems to drive safety up and risk down. Academics and hand-on safety specialists learn from each other as no topic is too difficult for the panel to tackle.

The Rail Procurement Roadshows

…are a series of UK conferences and workshops designed to encourage those new to the industry, and those not so new, to develop their skills in bidding for and winning work. There is a vast opportunity for suppliers to secure new contracts, across both the existing network and new large-scale infrastructure projects, and these roadshows will help you pitch for that business.


The RailSport Games

…have, since the early 1990s, been encouraging railway staff to reignite their long-held hopes of sporting glory and compete to be crowned the industry’s best. The RailSport Games tournament was established by the British Rail Staff Association and continues to this day with the help of many great volunteers. It has welcomed thousands of competitors from across the rail industry, participating in everything from cycling to rounders, darts to chess and football to rugby. As employers increasingly promote staff fitness, the RailSport Games are open to individuals and to company teams, both for serious competition and for the fun of participating.



…is an Outdoor Plant exhibition for the Rail Sector. Rail Media has teamed up with PLANTWORX to launch a brand new outdoor rail equipment trade show for 2019. PLANTWORX is the UK’s largest plant and equipment exhibition, with over 15,000 visitors in 2017. It's about to get even bigger with the introduction of RailWorx, the new dedicated section for the rail industry.
