Shannon Rail Services 
was established in 2002 initially to provide the UK rail industry with self-contained mobile site access units and road haulage facilities. Since then the company has expanded to provide a range of ancillary support solutions to the sector including a web-based time & attendance and reporting system, and a highly regarded training centre and medical suite located at the main depot in Watford. Apart from our comprehensive offer we see our real strengths in a continuing commitment to investment and innovation, and a client focused philosophy putting you, the customer, at the centre of our approach to business. 


“Railways are a 24/7 operation. We take pride in the fact that our customers can speak directly to a member of the senior management team at any time” 

“We don’t think of ourselves as a site access company, labour supply company, IT company, or transport company. We see ourselves as a railway business”

Pat McAnulty, Managing Director


“When we first talk to our clients we don’t tell them what they need. We learn about their business and projects, we listen to their aims and aspirations, then we devise and deliver solutions to help them achieve their goals.”

Carl Shillito, General Manager
