Golden Whistle Awards

The brainchild of Chartered Institution of Railway Operators luminary Chris Loder, the Golden Whistles event was founded in 2010 to promote best practice and celebrate excellence in railway operations.

After a hiatus in 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Golden Whistles returned to an in-person format on Friday 25 February 2022. Awards recognising the efforts of operators and operating teams were presented as the climax of a full day event at the Marriott Grosvenor Square in London.

We are grateful for the ongoing support of our lead sponsor Tracsis, our associate sponsors Porterbrook and Resonate, and to the CIRO, particularly the hard work put in by the South East Area Council to calculate and judges the winners of the awards and to make the event possible.
