Awards Events

The RailStaff Awards

The RailStaff Awards is all about the individuals and recognises the great achievements of so many people who work on the railway. This awards ceremony focuses on saying a big fat Thank You to spectacular people. Whether you’ve saved a life, managed a huge scale project or just done your job darn well this year - this event is a celebration of the great work so many individuals undertake each day, from drivers to cleaners, engineers to station staff. Often these are stories of lives saved, careers turned around and adversity conquered. This recognition of our people in the national RailStaff Awards is the event of the year and next year we have our 10th anniversary.

The Rail Partnership Awards

Network Rail is working in partnership with Rail Media to recognise organisations which are helping to deliver a better railway for a better Britain. The 2018 Rail Partnership Awards are bringing together the supply chain to celebrate the very best of 2017’s achievements in the rail industry.

There are 14 awards open for nominations and only the winners from those awards will be eligible for consideration for the coveted Supplier of the Year Award. Judges will give this award to the organisation that has demonstrated excellence and best practice in all work areas. Network Rail Key Performance Indicators measured throughout the year will be taken into account, where appropriate, in making the decision.

Sporting Events

The RailSport Games

Since the early 1990s, RailSport has been encouraging railway staff to reignite their long-held hopes of sporting glory and compete to be crowned the industry’s best.

The RailSport Games tournament, which since its opening weekend has welcomed thousands of competitors from across the rail industry, was established by the British Rail Staff Association and continues to this day with the help of many great volunteers.

2017 is the first RailSport Games organised by Rail Media. We're working hard on making this the best weekend of sport and fun you can have. So we've moved the venue from Blackpool to Loughborough University; increased the numbers of sports available; and added loads of entertainment. We want the weekend to be a party!
