The UK's railway network is owned and managed by Network Rail, which employs engineers of all disciplines to plan, design and make improvements to the network. It also carries out all the maintenance work needed to keep the tracks and equipment working safely, and efficiently. With more than 34,000km of track to keep in good condition, quality engineers are always in demand.
