About SLC Rail

Company Overview
SLC started in 2009, with the simple aim of helping clients better understand how the railways can contribute to social, economic and sustainability goals. Today, every year over a million train passengers use one of SLC's pioneering new stations, with millions more benefiting from the company's input into other schemes and driving over 60 new station projects and train service and regeneration schemes. A growing SME with nearly 100 employees, the company specialises in helping non-industry railway scheme promoters develop strategic plans, win support, develop business cases that secure funding, and develop and deliver their projects.
