Dr Nigel G Harris
Nigel is amongst Britain's leading railway planners, with a reputation based initially on technical advances in fares policy research (at Newcastle University) and network modelling (during eight years at London Underground). In addition, he has expertise in service planning, operational simulation, track access charging, the management of passenger boarding & alighting, demand forecasting and railway business planning, which gives him a firm understanding of practical railway economics. He is a visiting lecturer at various universities and has written a number of books/papers on rail planning. However, his main role since 1995 has been in managing The Railway Consultancy, which has recently undertaken studies (both for RDG and TOCs) providing insights into current demand trends.
