Train operating companies

Our breadth of work across the rail sector provides us with a clear understanding of the needs, demands and constraints of Train and Freight Operating Companies (TOCs and FOCs).  These include design services, such as station improvements, new depots and communication systems. We have designed and supported passenger information systems for around 25% of UK stations.

We also provide a variety of strategic advisory and analytical services to train operators.  For example, we work with Heathrow Express analysing the performance of a wide range of assets, including station facilities, escalators and information systems and proposing ways to improve efficiency and drive greater value. 

Our maintenance, renewal and enhancement work across the rail network relies on close collaboration with train operators to optimise the planning of possessions, maximise the outcomes from our engineering works and develop new projects that enhance the network.
