Railway Industry Contacts

There are a large number of other former railway sites, but many (including most closed railways) were sold by British Rail decades ago. LCR does not hold information concerning current ownership of former railway lines and land.

Most operational railways, with trains running on them, are owned by Network Rail

Transport for London is responsible for the London Underground system and Croydon Tramlink. Other local railway systems include Tyne & Wear Metro and Manchester Metrolink. If you want information about property on one of these systems, please contact the relevant owner.

If you wish to rent a station trading unit at a Network Rail station, you need to contact the train operating company that runs the station or Network Rail itself in the case of a few major stations.

If you are buying a property next to a railway line, Network Rail provides useful advice on its website  

The High Speed 1 route and the stations at St Pancras, Stratford International, Ebbsfleet and Ashford are operated by High Speed 1 Limited.

LCR does not hold historical archives. Material has been passed to the National Railway Museum, the National Archives of Scotland and local archives. Enquiries should be made to them.

We do not handle travel enquiries. If you need information about train services, please phone 08457 48 49 50 or refer to National Rail Enquiries.
