Olympics Study Tour
Client: Russian Railways (RZhD), October 2012
With the 2014 Winter Olympics being held at Sochi, on Russia’s Black Sea coast, Russian Railways (RZhD) were keen to start planning early for this prestigious event. They wanted to learn from the success of transport arrangements at London’s 2012 Summer Olympics, and commissioned the Railway Consultancy Ltd (RCL) and Brit Education & Travel Ltd to organise a study tour for 8 senior managers during the Autumn of 2012. With our wide range of contacts in the railway industry, RCL arranged the technical side of the visit, which included visits to station and maintenance depots, rides on relevant rolling stock, and presentations by key players within the rail industry in London & the South East. After a full week of activities, the RZhD delegates returned home with a wide range of practical ideas to implement, and with knowledge of those to avoid.
