The Fourth Friday Club is the original networking forum for executives from all sectors of the railway industry. It was founded by former Modern Railways Editor James Abbott, based on an industry networking club he discovered in the USA.
Meetings are held six times per year, and all feature networking opportunities, luncheon and guest speakers. Three events are at central London venues and include major industry awards events – the Golden Spanners, Golden Whistles and Railway Innovation Awards. Three regional conferences are also held each year in the North of England, West of England/Wales and the Midlands.
Founded in 1998, the Awards are the annual event at which everybody keen on seeing innovation in the railway sector meets up to discuss and celebrate the brightest ideas in the industry.
In partnership with the Railway Industry Association. Sponsored by Porterbrook
Now established as an annual fixture, the Northern Rail Conference celebrates progress in the modernisation and improvement of the railways of the North of England.
The brainchild of Institution of Railway Operators luminary and now West Dorset MP Chris Loder, the Golden Whistles event was founded in 2010 to promote best practice and celebrate excellence in railway operations.

The Golden Spanners is an annual event at which all those interested in railway rolling stock meet to discuss best practice and celebrate excellence in train maintenance.
