Trainline celebrates International Women in Engineering Day


inwed-01It’s International Women in Engineering Day (#INWED17) and although at Trainline we dig great engineering all year round, today we’re especially celebrating the diversity of our team and the successes of our brilliant women engineers. Better still, we’re sharing their stories to inspire more young women to investigate the amazing opportunities open to them in engineering and technology.
