BRCC is proud to be the host organisation for the Abbey Line Community Rail Partnership in Hertfordshire, covering a small rural branch line between St Albans Abbey and Watford Junction stations.
There are a growing number of Community Rail Partnerships across the country, acting as a bridge between local communities and the railway industry to produce a better train service for the community. The Abbey Line was one of the first CRPs in the country to be set up. We have also been the lead partner and host for the CRP on the neighbouring Marston Vale Line (Bedford – Bletchley) since its formation in 2007.
The national umbrella organisation for Community Rail Partnerships is the Association of Community Rail Partnerships or ACoRP. This federation of over 50 community rail partnerships and rail promotion groups helps to ensure that the important role of local rail in communities is fully recognised.
