Network Rail generates over £200m each year from stations and property assets, money which is reinvested back into the railway to create a better railway for Britain.

Network Rail’s investment into railway-owned land and property assets improves experiences for passengers and also creates opportunities to work with third parties to provide new residential and commercial space, driving growth and regeneration in our towns and cities.

Network Rail itself has not built any units for rent or sale for commercial use. Its contractors have built units for commercial use, but Network Rail does not hold information on the number of units built by its contractors across its estate.
