See the Railway in Action!

Come and see the railway in action with everything from rail plant and infrastructure, traction & rolling stock, electrification and signalling demonstrations; to displays of engineering, rail maintenance materials & product development/testing safety, digital products and innovation. 


There's so much happening at Rail Live, we've had to create another site about it! Visit www.raillivepreview.com to see what's on show.


Rail Live 2016 importantly reflects the Rail Supply Group’s strategic vision of: Innovation, Skills, Export and Conditions for Growth – all geared to move the rail sector forwards to meet the new challenges in rail. 

This Year at Rail Live 2016?

The site will have designated zones for track, electrification, signalling & telecommunications and the show will also feature a number of networking hubs, a Rail Alliance members’ marquee with a wide range of exhibitors inside and also a business zone located in Zone L.

The Rail Live Business Zone is an exciting new addition to the show. This is a dedicated area with the specific purpose of giving visitors and exhibitors the opportunity to discover the various sources of information and assistance that are available to them to help grow and develop their business in rail.

The Business Zone, sponsored by Lloyds Banking Group, will also provide information on the Rail Supply Group (including Rail Mentor and Open Doors schemes.), Future Railway Test Voucher Scheme (authorised by RSSB and delivered by Rail Alliance to help the development of products and services to a commercial status), Young Railway Professionals and the delivery of Rail Week, NSAR, Digital Railway, UKTI, ERCI, Track Safety as well as innovation schemes such as TOC 16.

We are also welcoming a number of international companies who have booked to be at the show - including the MECATEAMCLUSTER from France and, via the Rail Alliance overseas agent in the Middle East, there will be several companies from this region too. UKTI will be on hand to answer any questions about export or international trade.
