Golden Spanner Awards and Conference

The Grand Connaught Rooms

Modern Railways Industry and Technology Editor Roger Ford (‘Captain Deltic’ to generations of the magazine’s readers) has for many years assessed the reliability of the nation’s train fleets. In 2005 the 4th Friday Club asked the Cap’n to hand out that archetypal depot tool, a spanner, to the builders, owners and maintainers of the most reliable fleets.

The Golden Spanners is now an annual event at which all those interested in railway rolling stock meet to discuss best practice and celebrate excellence in train maintenance. It features a morning conference on rolling stock matters before the lunch and handing out of the Spanners.

Companies do not need to enter these awards they are presented on the basis of nationally compiled statistics.
