ABSTRACT
This article reports on how three of the major names in the rail industry in Great Britain have proved their commitment to help combat the skills shortage in the industry, by allowing students to observe them to see what life at the top of the rail industry is really like. They are Nick Newton, executive director of the Strategic Rail Authority, Chris Green, chief executive of the Virgin Trains company and Brenda Klug, executive director of the customer service department of the Virgin Trains company. Students Rose Cochran and Nina Ingstad, accompanied Nick Newton to several of his meetings. Matthew Kitchin, spent the day with Chris Green and Brenda Klug. The students believe that the work shadowing activity allows students to gain a useful insight into the transport industry and has changed many misconceptions held about the role and activities of senior management. According to Graham A. Ewer, chief executive of the Institute of Logistics and Transport, the work shadow day project of the institute has proved beneficial for all parties involved. The members who took part gained useful comment from outsiders on how they view their particular business as well as the wider rail transport sector.
