Rail Roundhouse Dinner 2017

Posted on 30th October 2017

CoMech for the third year again was delighted to be a main sponsor of the brilliant Rail Dinner held at the fantastic Roundhouse in Derby.

With around 600 guests attending from some of the biggest names in the rail industry, dinner at the Roundhouse is an unmissable gathering of rail manufacturers, suppliers, operators, senior railwaymen, politicians and MPs.

This year’s event was hosted by the wonderful BBC sports commentator John Motson OBE, who throughout the evening delighted the attendees with hilarious tales from behind the scenes of the beautiful game.

We also had the pleasure of hearing from the President & CEO of Amtrak Charles Moorman who entertained the audience with his experiences of managing America & Canada’s rail infrastructure. The second keynote speaker on the night was Rob Brighouse, the chairman of East West Rail.

One of the amazing parts of the event is the dedication to helping charities. The event has proudly helped to raise over £120,000 for a variety of charities, proving the astonishing generosity that exists within the railway sector and its incredible power to help those in need locally, nationally and around the world.
