Another three Network Rail stations go blue for the NHS

Three key Network Rail stations have turned blue to show their support for the NHS during the Covid-19 pandemic.

To coincide with the weekly tribute to NHS, care staff, health professionals and other key workers, the Network Rail managed stations of Birmingham New Street, Liverpool Lime Street, and Euston stations joined numerous other railway landmarks and buildings across the country as they bathed themselves in blue light – the colour of the NHS.

Tim Shoveller, managing director for Network Rail’s North West and Central region, said: “It’s been great to join the rest of the railway industry to, quite literally, shine a light on the herculean effort being made by thousands of healthcare professionals working to save lives every day at this time of national crisis.

“We will continue to show how proud we are of the NHS and help in any way we can during the ongoing fight against the spread of Covid-19.”

At Euston the station frontage and historic Robert Stephenson and Captain Matthew Flinders statues were made blue, while messages were played on the media eye displays at the three station entrances at Birmingham New Street while staff Clapped for the NHS.
