Video | Network Rail releases Christmas song

Orange army choristers

A gang of singing railway workers has made a rowdy bid to top the Christmas pop charts.

The orange army choristers, engineers from Network Rail’s track team at Rugby in Warwickshire, posted ‘Away on the railway’, a re-work of the 1885 Christmas classic ‘Away in a manger,’ on social media.

“What we lack in vocal flair we more than make up for in festive cheer – and good looks,” said Network Rail orange army chorister and track operative at Rugby Ryan Buckley.

“While none of us are likely to be giving up the day job any time soon, we hope our crimbo crooning brings a smile to people’s faces – and reminds them that we, the orange army, are upgrading their railway this Christmas.”
