The RailStaff Awards 2019

The RailStaff Awards - 28th November 2019

Information about the event

The RailStaff Awards has been recognising the extraordinary achievements of rail industry employees since 2007.  

The ceremony shows appreciation for the people who deliver the railway - from drivers to cleaners, and engineers to station staff. Often these are stories of lives saved, careers turned around and adversity conquered.

In 2018, The RailStaff Awards saw over 1,000 people in attendance, 1,500 nominations and 62,000 votes. 

Join us on Thursday, 28th November 2019 at The NEC, in Birmingham as we honour more unsung heroes of the railway.
