GWR Proud of the communities we serve…


Great Western Railway is proud to support Cornwall Pride 2019.

This year we’re working with more Pride events across the GWR network than ever before.

As we modernise the fleet in one of the biggest upgrades in a generation, we believe it’s more important than ever before to support and celebrate the diverse communities we serve.

Since launching our Intercity Express #trainbow earlier this year, we’ve worked hard to support some of the events and celebrations of equality and diversity taking place on our routes.

GWR services to Newquay will have specially designed Cornwall Pride destination window labels before arriving into Newquay station which will have an entirely new-look for the weekend.

As people arrive by bus or train they’ll receive a complimentary #trainbow travel wallet containing everything they’ll need to know for getting home again.

The fun continues at Killacourt where GWR is hosting a Pride Station for more travel information, a chance to win great prizes and the chance to take part in a Facebook Live.

GWR Business Assurance Director Joe Graham said: “We’re proud to be supporting Cornwall Pride and making Newquay station such a colourful welcome for customers using the station over the Bank Holiday weekend.”

We are proud to be involved with Cornwall Pride. We are committed to making GWR a more inclusive organisation where people feel they can be themselves, and where our workforce is as diverse as the customers and communities we serve.

We’re making GWR more accessible for people from diverse backgrounds wanting to work with us by improving our recruitment process. We continue to support existing initiatives and groups such as Women In Rail, Prince’s Trust and Young Rail Professionals to joining organisations like Stonewall.

Our #trainbow train and adopting the Pride colours in our social media account logos has been embraced by our customers in demonstrating our values in equality and diversity in all we do and wherever serve.

We’re looking forward to Cornwall Pride and don’t forget to share your photographs, selfies and comments with us via the @GWRHelp twitter feed and using the #trainbow hashtag!
