The Rail app now not only includes Britain’s market-leading modern railway magazine, but also provides you with access to;

• regularly updated free railway news
• The Rail website

Our journalists take you behind the stories that make the headlines – while our contacts in Westminster bring you the latest in Government railway policy.

Published fortnightly, RAIL brings you…

- Exclusive UK railway news

- Unbiased, apolitical industry analysis

We cover the latest news on operations and maintenance across the UK network, including coverage of services provided by Network Rail, train operators and the wider industry.

Light rail and tramways are also covered in a magazine that campaigns hard for a fair deal for Britain’s railway.

And our features, written by the very best railway writers, cover a wide range of topics, as well as occasionally delving into nostalgia.

RAIL is priced at:

•£2.99 per single issue
•£5.49 per one month – just £2.53p PER ISSUE!
•£64.99 per 12 months – just £2.50p PER ISSUE!

All the latest news for the rail industry look forward to the magazine every fortnight ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Too many magazines try to add unnecessary interactivity in their publications these days which bulks up file size. This is one of them. Would much rather have a plain old .pdf file that takes up little space in comparison. The publication itself is great of course.
