The latest forum for railway engineering

Share This..


ICRE 2018 is the latest forum for railway engineers to showcase their work and discuss ways in which we can improve the way we plan, maintain, modernise and operate our railway network.

How can we continue to meet the growing passenger demand?  How can we make railways cheaper to build, maintain and operate?  What more can we do to make our railways more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly

The conference will examine and showcase new ideas, technologies and developments that have the potential to address questions such as these whilst ensuring that our railways continue to grow and improve into the 21st Century.
