Calling all young designers, coders and makers!

The Regional Rail Revival Design Challenge 2050 is on again this year, and we are inviting regional Victorian students in Years 5-10 to share their creative ideas for the future of train travel.

Whether your idea is about the experience of travelling on a train, improving the way you get around a station, or using smart and sustainable tech for a more enjoyable journey, we’d love to hear it.
