How long has RDG been around?

RDG was previously known as ATOC (Association of Train Operating Companies). ATOC was set up after privatization in 1993, to preserve and enhance the benefits for passengers of Britain's national rail network. In 2011, it was joined by RDG to provide policy formulation and communications on behalf of the entire industry. Then by October 2016, the single name of Rail Delivery Group was adopted to describe the organisation as a whole and all our activities.

  • 26 days annual leave (plus bank holidays, Christmas shopping leave, Moving House day)
