BEGINS the event blurb: “Scotland’s railways have a critical role to play in supporting the wider economy, our communities and Scotland’s push for Net Zero. However, the impact of the past two years presented a fundamental challenge to the scope, viability and purpose of rail as passenger numbers plummeted and travel patterns altered. What therefore needs to happen next to ensure rail in Scotland’s long-term sustainability?
“[This] 12th Annual Scottish Rail Conference will explore the strategic recovery picture for rail. It will discuss what has been happening on the ground on projects, services and patronage and will focus on where Scottish rail goes from here.”
