East Lothian Community Rail Partnership, one of three partnerships supported in Scotland by train operator CrossCountry, have hit a major milestone by appointing their first paid position in selecting Philip Immirzi as their Rail Project Manager.

Previously run by volunteers, CrossCountry’s funding has enabled the partnership to take the next step in bringing in a project specialist to take the lead on many of their plans over the next 12 months. This will include the production of paper timetables incorporating a line guide and other projects involving access and promotion of rail travel.

Philip has a wealth of knowledge in delivering projects having supported many community activities over the last 20 years. A Chartered Environmentalist by day, Philp has previously had research commissioned and published during his time with Scottish Natural Heritage.

Harry Baker, Chair of East Lothian CRP, said of Philip’s appointment “We’re delighted to be able to bring in Philip’s experience to the partnership. His passion for rail made him the perfect candidate to support East Lothian’s ambitious plans to deliver projects through the communities. The support from CrossCountry has been an essential factor in making this happen”.
