Only companies that have signed up to use the app are granted access. So, while you can download the app, if your organisation hasn’t signed up, you won’t be able to login and use it.


The Rule Book contains sets of clear instructions which rail staff must follow in certain safety critical scenarios in railway operation.

If you or your teams work on the track, on trains, on platforms, on railway work sites and possessions; or if you're a train driver, shunter or signaller, you'll use the Rule Book. Now there's an app that gives you access to the Rule Book 24/7, making it easier to consult on-the-go.

The app is available via the iOS App Store, Google Play as well as on internet browsers. You will only be able to login to the app if your company has an agreement in place.

Find out how your company can sign up to get the app.  Setting up a licence agreement for the Rule Book App is easy. So, we can arrange access to the app for you and your colleagues.

The app is available on Android or iOS – ideal for smartphones and tablets – and through internet browsers such as Explorer, Chrome, Safari, Edge or Firefox if you’re using the Windows OS and need to access it from a laptop or desktop PC.
