Railfuture is an independent, voluntary group representing rail users in Britain with
20,000 affiliated and individual members. It is not funded by train companies, political parties or
trade unions, and all members have an equal say.
Railfuture campaigns for cheap and convenient rail services for everyone; better links
for buses, bikes and pedestrians; policies to get more heavy lorries on to rail; new lines, stations and
freight terminals. In short, a better rail service and a bigger rail system for both passengers and freight.
Railfuture is pro-rail but not anti-road or anti-air. However, we campaign for a switch from
road and air to rail. We do not interfere in the running of the railway - we campaign for the quality and range of
services provided, not how they are delivered. We are the only champion of all rail users.
Railfuture is the campaigning name of Railfuture Ltd.
A not-for-profit Company Limited by Guarantee.
