Rail Live 2016 importantly reflects the Rail Supply Group’s strategic vision of: Innovation, Skills, Export and Conditions for Growth – all geared to move the rail sector forwards to meet the new challenges in rail.

So last week the Long Marsden Rail Technology Centre was THE place to be for anyone involved in the UKs ever growing rail industry.

There appeared to be an almost ‘carnival atmosphere’ as thousands descended on the show’s opening day. They’d come to see demonstrations, catch up with friends and find out what new technologies are on offer.

Astra’s stand attracted a lot of interest with new products on show, many specifically designed for the Rail Industry. With a stand located next to the entrance – our team were kept on their toes from the minute the show opened with the croppers and shears proving a very popular attachment!
