Community Rail Conference

Hosted in partnership with the Department for Transport, our Community Rail Conference is specifically for community rail partnerships and their rail industry partners.

The 2023 conference brought a fresh format, with a more fluid approach that gave our members a chance to direct the discussion towards topics that are important to them.
