STATION OF THE YEAR - Small, Medium, Large, Major

Stations are divided into four sections for judging – Small, Medium, Large & Major Termini. Nominations are invited for each category from Train Operating Companies, Network Rail and Community Rail Partnerships. The judges may also add their own nominations. 



Who should enter?

You are encouraged to enter your best two stations for each of the Small, Medium and Large categories (the Major Termini are entered automatically every year). You can enter more stations if you wish, but please do check that your chosen stations will be in top form for a judging visit between April and June and are potentially award-winning stations. (Please note: Stations in poor physical condition, or stations where construction or restoration is clearly still work in progress and still under scaffolding for example, should not be entered)



How to enter

There is no entry fee for the Stations awards and no presentation is required - just send in the names of your chosen stations for each category. We do however ask that a senior manager in your company signs off your final selection to avoid inappropriate entries and wasted effort on all sides.



Judging criteria

All stations entered for these awards will be visited and judged against a common set of criteria including access, information, ticketing, customer-service, disabled access, presentation and special features (eg links to local communities; gardens, flowers etc).  Particular emphasis will be placed on initiative and innovation.
