Appleby Station Supervisor nominated for National Award

One of the Settle-Carlisle’s team of station staff has been shortlisted for a national award.

Manny Wright is Station Supervisor at Appleby station where day-in, day-out he goes above and beyond his duties to give passengers and visitors to the station a fantastic service. He is well known for his warm welcome for visitors to the station and particularly helped customers throughout closure of the Settle-Carlisle line.

He has received industry-wide recognition by being shortlisted for the Outstanding Personal Achievement award at this year’s National Rail Awards.

Manny told us “Working on such an iconic line as the S&C, and at such a friendly station as Appleby is an absolute privilege, and as far as I’m concerned, providing the best possible experience for my customers and colleagues is what I am here for. “

So if you are at Appleby Station and he is working in the booking office, do say hello.

The National Rail Awards, which are organised by Rail Magazine, are presented on 21 September.
