The Big Bang North West 2016: Network Rail – Earthworks, Marbles, Safety Gear & Beer Goggles!

With a fantastic range of activities, we’re looking forward to welcoming Network Rail to The Big Bang North West 2016!

“Visit the Network Rail stand at The Big Bang North West! We will have a Marble Run game, Earthworks activity and fun safety demonstrations including beer goggles! There will also be a quiz and the chance to try on some of our personal protective equipment.”

You can find out what it takes to ensure over 4.5 million people get to their destination safely every day!

The purpose of Network Rail is to own, operate, and maintain the UK’s rail infrastructure –  managing the tracks, land, property, bridges, tunnels, signals, stations and communications.

  • Network Rail have replaced over 13.5 million tonnes of ballast – the equivalent weight of almost 200 QE2s.
