Community groups, industry experts and other stakeholders involved and interested in rail are being given the chance influence future railway station design as part of ThinkStation – a series of 11 pioneering workshops launching on 22 November.  

Run by Design Council, ThinkStation builds on our recent work with Network Rail to help develop their Principles of Good Design. By ensuring that a strong design culture is embedded across Network Rail, these design principles play a vital role in supporting the organisation to be a more customer-focused, service-driven organisation that puts passengers first. Each ThinkStation workshop will focus on one specific design principle and how this can be embedded to create a railway station of the future.  

ThinkStation workshops, which will take place in London, Manchester, Bristol and Glasgow, will engage attendees in a range of interactive design sessions. Participants will also hear from a line-up of inspiring, high-profile speakers including acclaimed broadcaster and transport historian, Tim Dunn, and Disability and Gender Equity Advocate, Dr Hannah Barham-Brown. Participants will be challenged to think innovatively about how we can elevate railway stations from being an essential to an enjoyable part of our journey, whatever the occasion.
