900 days of no RNEP: Delays to vital rail plan causing uncertainty to projects, warns industry

Railway Industry Association press release 08/04/2022

Today, 8 April, marks 900 days since the Government last published its plan of projects to improve the UK’s railways, leaving the industry in the dark about upcoming rail upgrades, according to the Railway Industry Association (RIA).

RIA, which represents over 300 rail businesses around the UK, has repeatedly called for the Department for Transport (DfT) to publish the Rail Network Enhancements Pipeline (RNEP), which has not been updated since 21 October 2019.

The RNEP is a list of planned upgrades to the railway network set to take place in the five years between 2019 and 2024. This list has not been updated and published since 2019, despite the Government committing to updating it annually.

The pipeline will also likely determine when projects set out in the Integrated Rail Plan will be built, including electrification of the Midland Mainline, Transpennine Route Upgrade and East Coast signalling upgrades, all of which will have major benefits for passengers travelling around the country.

In 2019, the RNEP included schemes such as increasing freight capacity in Cumbria and Heathrow Western Rail Link. The status of many of these projects is now uncertain.

Answering a Parliamentary Question in February this year, the Rail Minister Wendy Morton responded that the Government is committed to publishing an update to the RNEP ‘shortly’.

Darren Caplan, Chief Executive of the Railway Industry Association (RIA), commented: “The continued delay to the RNEP, now two and half years since the last update, leaves businesses unaware of upcoming rail investment plans, impacting their ability to invest and support economic growth around the country. RIA’s Enhancements Clock now shows we are passing the 900 day milestone.

“We regularly hear from rail suppliers that they struggle to plan for the years ahead with such little certainty about which projects will be given the green light in the coming years. In what is a complex and highly skilled sector like rail, this uncertainty hamstrings businesses’ ability to deliver cost-effectively, and risks adding costs and delays to key upgrades.

“Yet, if RNEP was published, the sector could deliver even greater benefits to passengers and the UK economy, supporting investment, hiring new graduates and apprentices, enabling innovation and delivering greater value for the taxpayer. This is not a call for more funding, rail businesses simply need to know what the Government plans to invest in.

“With only around 100 days until Parliamentary recess, we urge the Government to publish this list before we reach 1,000 days without an RNEP update. By doing so, they really can help support greater economic growth, investment and jobs across the UK.”

West Somerset Railway Mixed Traction Weekend – We’ll see you there!

Class 35 ‘Hymek’ D7018 digs in to the 1 in 75 gradient as she approaches Longlands Bridge on the climb from Norton Fitzwarren to Bishops Lydeard on 7th August 2021. Photo © Mark Ireland.

Railcam are delighted to be joining the West Somerset Railway and The Diesel and Electric Preservation Group for the upcoming Mixed Traction Weekend where we hope to bring you some behind the scenes footage throughout the two days, and beyond…..

You can keep up with all the action across our extensive camera coverage from the railway, with cameras at Bishops Lydeard, the beautiful Blue Anchor, Crowcombe Heathfield, Minehead (No services currently serving Minehead) and Williton.


The West Somerset Railway is proud to present a weekend of mixed traction with a selection of home fleet diesel and steam locomotives running our intensive timetable on Friday 17th & Saturday 18th September.

There will be mainly diesel haulage on the Friday plus one steam loco in service, then a mix of three diesels and two steam engines on the Saturday, and then a more normal steam-only ‘red timetable’ service will operate on the Sunday.

Diesel locos planned to run during the event are all home based locomotives in care of the Diesel Electric Preservation Group (DEPG) in the shape of Class 35 ‘Hymek’ D7018 and Class 33’s ‘Crompton’ D6566 and D6575.

On the Saturday, two of the home-based WSR steam fleet of former GWR locos in newly painted Large Prairie No. 5199 and No. 7828 “Odney Manor” will join the diesels.

On both days most of the trains are expected to run between Bishops Lydeard and Blue Anchor & Dunster stations, plus maybe a couple of workings over the little used Bishops Lydeard to Norton Fitzwarren section. Meanwhile on the Saturday Large Prairie No. 5199 will be providing local services between Bishops Lydeard and Williton

The short section between Dunster and Minehead will be unavailable, however, as engineering works continue the renewal of the Seaward Way level crossing at Minehead, but a heritage bus link will be provided for passengers to travel on to Minehead if desired.

The Mixed Taction Weekend highlights include:

  • Four locomotives in action on Friday. Five on Saturday
  • A short local service hauled by GWR 2-6-2T 5199 making three return trips Bishops Lydeard – Williton on the Saturday
  • Top and Tailed Class 33s on a full length set on the Friday. Over 110 miles available.
  • Two runs to Norton Fitzwarren on the Friday. Five runs on Saturday (dependent on occupancy of the Bishops Lydeard – Norton Fitzwarren section by the mainline ballast train operation)
  • 64 miles of ‘Hymek Haulage’ available on Friday with Saturday allowing 85 miles
  • Two Saturday afternoon/evening trips, one hauled by D6575 and the other by D7018

Timetable for the event can be found HERE


We are also throwing open all our West Somerset Railway cameras on our YouTube Channel for the event, and you can find those below…..

Before and after video shows historic Calder Valley viaduct restored

A 181-year-old viaduct designed by railway pioneer George Stephenson has been painstakingly restored to improve passenger journeys in the Calder Valley.

Network Rail has now removed scaffolding to reveal the repainted and repaired Grade II listed Gauxholme viaduct in Todmorden.

The essential maintenance to the 1840-built structure was completed as part of a £3.7m Great North Rail Project investment.

A before and after video released today (Thursday 27 May) shows how the important piece of railway heritage has been brought back to its Victorian splendour.

As part of the same investment, nearby Taylors bridge, which carries the railway over Rose Bank Road near Todmorden station, was completely reconstructed.

Kathryn Berry, scheme project manager for Network Rail, said: “It’s extremely satisfying to finally unwrap this iconic structure from the scaffolding and reveal Gauxholme viaduct once again in all its Victorian glory. Along with the work to Taylors bridge, this is a major investment for Todmorden to improve railway journeys in the Calder Valley.

 “We have been working closely with Calderdale Council throughout and thank passengers, road users and the local community for their patience while we carried out this essential work.”

Tony Baxter, regional director at Northern, said: “It’s fantastic that such an important piece of local railway heritage will continue to serve Northern’s customers. The repair and renovation work will give our customers in the Calder Valley better journeys for years to come.”

The viaduct, which spans the Rochdale canal, was strengthened, deep cleaned and repainted black as requested by the local authority.

Cllr Jane Scullion, Calderdale Council’s cabinet member for regeneration and strategy, said: “It’s great news that work to Gauxholme viaduct is now complete with this historic structure restored to its former glory. 
“We’ve supported Network Rail throughout the project and we were pleased to provide advice to ensure the works were in keeping with the special industrial and architectural character of the bridge. The finished work looks really impressive and is a distinctive landmark along the Calder Valley line.”

Craig Whittaker, MP for Calder Valley, said: “I am delighted that restoration work on the Grade II listed Gauxholme viaduct in Todmorden has now been completed to its former glory, something which George Stephenson would be very proud of. I am incredibly grateful to the team who have completed the work to a high standard. Even in the rain , the structure now looks magnificent. I am equally delighted that the Taylors Bridge has been completely reconstructed.”

The canal towpath is now also fully reopened to pedestrians after the major upgrade.

Railcam Data allocations, an update…..

Why does my name no longer appear against an allocation in RCData?

Sadly, some people seem to treat RCData as some sort of competition as to who can add the most number of allocation (often leading to people guessing based on what ‘my mate said’, where a loco was last reported, services it usually runs etc….). We’ve had numerous cases of people removing then re-adding identical information under their own name, which in turn seems to upset people whose names are replaced. Likewise, the Notes section seems to be treated by a minority, as a sort of chatroom, flooding it with discussion rather than clear, concise information. That’s not what the Notes section is for – we have a chatroom for that!

RCData is all about information. The only thing that matters is that the information is reliable – really, there is no need to know who added it. Username information is still added in the background and is available to the Admin team in case of dispute or misuse.

We are saddened to have to take this line of action, but we have been left with no option as the number of complaints are stacking up and as a small admin team, we have better things to be dealing with.

HS2 shortlists Track Systems and Tunnel and Lineside M&E suppliers

Following on from the start of construction, today’s announcement unlocks more opportunities for Britain’s construction and engineering sector, hard-hit by the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic.

Both sets of contract opportunities cover design and construction between London, Birmingham and Crewe, where HS2 trains will join the existing West Coast Mainline. The winners of the Track systems contracts will also take a lead role in managing and coordinating the complex interfaces between the track and other elements of the rail systems.

The following organisations will be invited to tender for Track Systems:

Lot 1 – Phase One (Urban – London and Birmingham) – £434m

  • Balfour Beatty Group Ltd, ETF SAS, TSO SAS (BBVT Joint Venture)

Rail, switches and crossings and pre-cast slab track will be delivered by separate suppliers – with the Track Systems contractor coordinating the design, logistics and installation. The winning bidders are set to commence work on site once the tunnels, bridges, viaducts and earthworks are complete.

The winning Track Systems contractors will oversee the design and construction of plain line track, switches and crossings, an infrastructure maintenance depot, managing construction logistics and supporting the testing and commissioning phase. They will also act as Construction Design and Management (CDM) Principal Contractor for the trace and be responsible for logistics and consents co-ordination.

The winner of the estimated £498m Tunnel and Lineside M&E package will be a Principal Contractor, delivering the design, supply, manufacture, installation, testing, commissioning and maintenance (until handover) of the Phase One and Phase 2a Tunnel and Lineside M&E systems.

This includes the tunnel services within the shafts, tunnels and cross-passages, low voltage power services and distribution in the open route. The contractor will also design, supply, install, test and commission the tunnel ventilation systems.

The following organisations will be invited to tender for Tunnel and Lineside M&E:

  • Alstom Transport UK Ltd
  • Balfour Beatty Bailey Joint Venture (BBB JV) – a joint venture between Balfour Beatty Group Ltd and NG Bailey Ltd
  • Costain Group PLC

HS2 Ltd’s Procurement and Commercial Director, David Poole said:

“Rail systems are some of the most important parts of the HS2 project – the high-tech equipment and systems that will allow our trains to deliver an unparalleled service in terms of speed, frequency and reliability.

“The appointment of the Track Systems and M&E suppliers will be an important milestone for the project, and a significant opportunity for the industry and the wider supply chain. At the peak of construction, HS2 will support around 30,000 jobs and contracts like this will provide a real boost for employers across the supply chain, helping to boost skills and provide opportunities for years to come.”

Contracts for Track Systems and Tunnels and Lineside M&E are expected to be awarded in 2022.
