About Train Education

About TrainEd

Our mission is to connect the community to the railway and educate them about safety, careers and sustainability whilst giving them the confidence to travel. We offer fully-costed sessions to schools and community groups across parts of Lancashire and Yorkshire. 

What is Community Rail?

Community rail is a growing grassroots movement made up of community rail partnerships and groups across Britain. They engage communities and help people get the most from their railways, promoting social inclusion and sustainable travel, working alongside train operators to bring about improvements, and bringing stations back to life.
