Welcome to RailEnable

With an emphasis on the London area, RailEnable researches an improved rail network. We believe in travel by train. Rail is socially inclusive and better for the environment. Welcome therefore to RailEnable. We hope you find our published research interesting.

We have five current proposals :

Firstly, concerning travel in the Oxford to Cambridge arc.

We propose east west rail in Hertfordshire with a new rail corridor Rickmansworth, Watford Junction, St Albans Abbey, London Colney, Hatfield, Welwyn, Stevenage, Ware, Harlow Town.

Secondly, concerning the East Coast Main Line (ECML).

We propose Crossrail services to the West Anglia Main Line (WAML) and via Ware, Stevenage on to the ECML. This enables capacity release on the ECML two track section between Knebworth and Welwyn.

Thirdly, a station stop on High Speed 2 in the vicinity of Aylesbury.

Fourthly, a direct London commuter service via Camberley.

Fifthly, a Crossrail, or Crossrail 2, circular service via Reading.

Further details follow.


Project : East west rail - Oxford to Cambridge

Welcome to our research into travel in the Oxford to Cambridge arc.



East west rail in Hertfordshire

Extending the Abbey line : east west services at Watford Junction also co-existence with Radlett SRFI

Our research into travel in the Oxford to Cambridge arc is in three parts. A summary can be obtained by reading the conclusions at the end of part three.

It is possible to follow the essence of our current thinking by reading part three.

We propose east west rail in Hertfordshire with a new rail corridor Rickmansworth, Watford Junction, St Albans Abbey, London Colney, Hatfield, Welwyn, Stevenage, Ware, Harlow Town.

As part of this proposal, we propose an extension of the Abbey line from St Albans Abbey via London Colney to Hatfield.

We strongly suggest that an extension of the Abbey line be planned and safeguarded and we urge cooperation between statutory authorities and the proposers of Radlett Strategic Rail Freight Interchange (SRFI) to achieve co-existence. As a first approximation the extension of the Abbey line would be located along the north eastern boundary of the SRFI i.e. form the boundary. Further details in part three.

Part three : Oxford to Cambridge : east west rail in Hertfordshire


Project : ECML two track section between Knebworth and Welwyn

Welcome to our research concerning the East Coast Main Line (ECML).



East west rail in Hertfordshire. Also Crossrail to WAML and via Ware, Stevenage to ECML.

We propose Crossrail services to the West Anglia Main Line (WAML) and via Ware, Stevenage on to the ECML. This enables capacity release on the ECML two track section between Knebworth and Welwyn.

Tramways are dangerous including for cyclists. We will never propose a tramway unless it is segregated.
