As we prepare to celebrate our 100th birthday and mark 170 years of railway publishing, plans for our Centenary Congress on July 1 are well in hand.

We have a first-class line-up of expert speakers who have been briefed to examine future developments in railway technology in the context of an increasingly competitive business environment. Whether your interest lies in freight or passenger operations, track, signalling or operations, this is an excellent opportunity to network with industry leaders and gain an insight into future developments.

We hope that many of our readers will share the event with us, and we look forward to welcoming you in London. Make sure of your place by using the booking form enclosed with this issue or e-mail
