The Rail Delivery Group brings together the owners of Britain's Train Operating Companies, Freight Operating Companies and Network Rail to provide leadership to Britain's rail industry.

The Group has been set up in response to the call by the Rail Value for Money Study, chaired by Sir Roy McNulty, for the rail industry to demonstrate leadership.

 Sounds like jobs for the boys.... Probably another quango funded by us taxpayers, to line the pockets of the politicians friends, sorry I have no faith in any of them or these sorts of things..

I seriously doubt the RDG is funded by taxpayers. It's an industry body and it explicitly bars anyone from government or the Office of Rail Regulation from being members.

More a talking shop for the industry than a quango.

It is supposed to deliver the cost savings by promoting cooperation between Network Rail and Operators

Future funding is proposed to be Network Rail (as it's set up), then 50% from Network Rail and 50% from licensed train operators thereafter.  This is a consultation question (Q7), so your views are sought  Wink.

UK: The Rail Delivery Group has announced leadership changes, and a restructuring which it said is designed to make it better placed to support the reform of the rail industry.

Steve Montgomery, Managing Director of FirstGroup?s First Rail business, becomes RDG Chair, succeeding Chris Burchell who is to step down as Managing Director of Arriva UK Trains in mid-October and leave the rail sector.

RDG Chief Executive Paul Plummer will retire at the end of this year, in a move which was delayed from autumn 2019 when RDG asked him to stay because it had not been possible to secure the ?right alternative? candidate

In the expectation that the government will create a ?guiding mind? to bring greater co-ordination to the railway, RDG has been restructured with two ?pillars? which it said ?currently? sit within the same organisation.

The first is Service Delivery, which provides functions to support the operation of the railway such as ticketing systems and online journey planning. This will be led by current RDG Chief Operating Officer Jacqueline Starr, who becomes overall RDG Chief Executive Officer.

The second pillar is Advocacy & Change, which aims to contribute to the development of railway policy while also facilitating cross-industry collaboration. This will be led by current Chief Strategy Officer Andy Bagnall who becomes RDG Director General..
