What Does National Rail Enquiries Do?

National Rail is used by the Association of Train Operating Companies as a general term to define the passenger rail services that run in Britain.A full timetable of National Rail services can be obtained from the website, or for details or services near to you, call the National Rail Enquiries phone number. Before the adoption of this moniker, “Great Britain Passenger Railway” was used. National Rail should not be confused with Network Rail. National Rail deals with the passenger aspect of the railway service, whereas Network rail deals with technical details such as the tracks. The predecessor of National Rail, British Rail passed along a number of traits when it was privatised in 1993. Some of these include the use of the famous double-arrow symbol and the ticketing structure.  Some rail services in the UK, such as Manchester’s MetroLink or Sheffield’s SuperTram are not part of the National Rail network. To find services that are, call the National Rail Enquiries number.

 Network Rail Origins

The National Rail logo was introduced by the Association of Train Operating Companies in 1999,following the creation of the Railways act in 1993 and was used on public timetables from September that year. In 2003 the Journey Planner website was launched, an extremely useful tool allowing customers to plan their journeys and calculate how much the tickets will cost them. The technological developments continued, in 2009 a 24/7 live disruption service was launched on Twitter, with a mobile site following in 2011 and an iPhone app in 2012.
