The Historical Railways Estate (HRE) is a collection of over 3,100 structures and assets which were once part of Britain's rail network.

Since 2013 we've been responsible for looking after it on behalf of the Department for Transport. Many of the structures were built more than 100 years ago.

Find out more about who we are, what we do and why in our video with Head of Programme Helene Rossiter and Director of Transformation and Performance Rich Marshall.
