Midlands Area Council

It is an exciting time for rail in the Midlands, and over the coming calendar year, we plan on hosting helpful, practical and applicable webinars and events for our members to further their professional development and enhance their careers in their respective rail operations sector, to improve their way of working ready for the rail sector and the innovative developments that are coming to the Midlands railway operations.

Our aim is to continue the growth of the Midlands Area Council and to utilise our networking opportunities for our members and build a long-standing organisation of rail professionals across the counties of the Midlands, with a wealth of knowledge and shared expertise.
