DB Cargo UK is proud to support Rail Week and help schools, teachers, career advisers and students learn more about the exciting opportunities a career in rail can provide.

Rail Week celebrates and promotes the diverse and rewarding prospects available across the rail sector. DB Cargo UK is running a week of activities to shine a light on the rail freight industry. Each day we will publish a new and exciting article about what happens day to day at the UKs leading rail freight provider.
