Rail Consultancy Client Stories

Three reasons to consult RSSB

  • Efficiency: We don’t cut corners, so we can’t promise the industry’s fastest turnaround. But our subject-matter experts are already among the most informed in the world – so they can hit the ground running.
  • Cost-effectiveness: We are owned by our members, so we don’t focus on maximising profits. And our hands-on experience lets us accurately define a project’s scope right at the start, minimising wasted effort.
  • Expertise: When you absolutely have to get it right first time, get experience on your side. We carry out the first-principles engineering that defines the standards that rail runs on.
