Porterbrook renews partnership with National Railway Museum

Porterbrook is pleased to announce the renewal of our partnership with the National Railway Museum for 2022. The museum in York, and its sister site Locomotion in Shildon, showcases the best of British railways through inspiring displays, collections and exhibitions.

Mary Grant, CEO of Porterbrook said:

"The National Railway Museum plays a hugely important role in curating rail’s history and heritage while articulating a vision for its future. I am delighted to continue our partnership with the museum through which we can support their work and highlight how today’s innovations are helping deliver a more sustainable railway tomorrow.”

Judith McNicol, Director of the National Railway Museum, said:

“We’re delighted that Porterbrook will continue to support the work of the National Railway Museum at such an exciting time in our Vision 2025 work. Partnerships such as this allow us to achieve our goal of becoming the World’s Railway Museum, and working with rail industry partners is something that we really value and appreciate.”

The partnership is an important part of Porterbrook’s commitment to inspire and support young people into STEM careers in rail. In addition to the National Railway Museum, the company partners with the Derby Manufacturing University Technical College, supports the Young Rail Professionals organisation, and donates rolling stock and components to schools and universities to support hands-on learning.
