Rail Industry Memorial Day
On Thursday 23rd March 2023, three years after the first national lockdown, the rail industry came together to acknowledge the contribution of colleagues in rail who kept people and goods moving during the pandemic. We held an event at the Health Shield offices in Crewe to mark the day and watched the live stream of the service from York Railway Museum. Guests included representatives from Avanti, Unipart Rail, EnGauged, HeadShunt, Modern Railway Magazine, Porterbrook, Freightliner and Railway Mission.
Attendees came together to recognise the impact, personal sacrifice and sad loss within the rail industry, but also to celebrate the people and their valuable contribution to keep Britain moving.
