Each year the railway comes together to remember the sacrifice and loss experienced during times of conflict. This year there will be events across the network albeit with some caution due to the continuing COVID-19 Pandemic.
Below we have a list of services that are being planned. But some are still to be confirmed while others that have been arranged in previous years will probably not be arranged this year due to the ongoing pandemic.
Remembrance services are not intended to glorify war, trivialise sacrifice and loss experienced, but to both facilitate a corporate act of remembrance and to bring a connection between church and industry that can stimulate conversation and understanding. Chaplains are working to build on the success of the past and to enhance the chaplaincy and the relationship
between stations and local churches.
