Rail Futures is an independent, non-partisan group formed to advocate sustainable rail solutions for public transport and freight problems. Our membership includes very experienced rail professionals, engineers and economists.
We believe the case for rail solutions needs to be argued with sound commercial, economic and social reasoning, and we wish to contribute to better public debate on transport problems from a rail perspective.
