Military personnel and veterans attending services of remembrance will be able to travel to and from the events by train for free this coming weekend.
The offer will benefit people travelling to and from services anywhere in Britain on Remembrance Sunday on 12 November.
Rail Delivery Group (RDG), which represents train companies, said the offer is open to serving military personnel in uniform or who show a current Ministry of Defence-issued identity card.
RDG chief executive Jacqueline Starr said: “Many of our great railway stations have memorials to the thousands of rail workers who gave their lives in the two world wars of the last century.
“During this period of reflection and remembrance, the rail industry is proud to help the service personnel of today – and those that have fought in more recent conflicts – travel to ceremonies up and down Britain as the nation gathers to remember those who have died serving our country.”
Transport Secretary Mark Harper said: “Remembrance Sunday is an important day of reflection across the country, honouring all of those who served our country with bravery and endeavour.
“It’s right that our veterans and serving military personnel will have free rail travel to and from remembrance services across Great Britain.
“We remember the past sacrifices, but also think of – and thank – those who continue to defend our freedoms and protect our way of life.”
