SLUG Newsletter Wins National Award
At a National Awards Ceremony in at the University of London Senate House in Central London yesterday, the SLUG newsletters (Platform, Platform 2 and Platform 3) received the award for best National Rail User Group Newsletter.

The voting panel consisted of five leading figures in the rail industry :-

  • Ian Brown CBE - Former Managing Director of London Rail
  • Roger Ford - Industry and Technology Editor of Modern Railways
  • Chris Green - Former Managing Director of Scotrail, Network South East and InterCity and Former Chief Executive of Virgin Trains
  • Stewart Palmer - Former Managing Director of South West Trains
  • Christian Wolmar - Renowned transport writer and broadcaster

A certificate was presented to SLUG Chairman Roger Davis by Railfuture President Christian Wolmar.
Among the accolades from the judges were comments such as "professional-quality presentation and content", "much more than just a user group magazine" and "has taken user group publications to a new level".

We were very proud when we heard that we had been nominated for the award.  To actually win the award and hear the comments that the judges made was amazing and everybody here at SLUG is thrilled to receive this accolade.

It is not the first time, we have been recognised nationally as our website was named as the best National Rail User Group Website in 2017.
