InnoTrans postponed!

InnoTrans, the largest global railway industry exhibition, held every two years in Berlin, Germany, has been postponed.

Scheduled for 22-25 September 2020, the organisers have issued a release that simply says: “We have taken note of the decree of the Berlin Senate dated 21 April 2020 regarding the ban on events with more than 5,000 persons until 24 October 2020.

“We are already finalizing an alternative event date and will announce it at the beginning of May at the latest.”

While no new date is yet known, rumours are that it could be sometime in April 2021.

SPECIALIST AREAS Rolling stock, mechanical equipment, project reports, executive interviews


Nigel Wordsworth graduated with an honours degree in Mechanical Engineering from Nottingham University, after which he joined the American aerospace and industrial fastener group SPS Technologies. After a short time at the research laboratories in Pennsylvania, USA, Nigel became responsible for applications engineering to industry in the UK and Western Europe. At this time he advised on various engineering projects, from Formula 1 to machine tools, including a particularly problematic area of bogie design for the HST.

A move to the power generation and offshore oil supply sector followed as Nigel became director of Entwistle-Sandiacre, a subsidiary of the Australian-owned group Aurora plc. At the same time, Nigel spent ten years as a Technical Commissioner with the RAC Motor Sports Association, responsible for drafting and enforcing technical regulations for national and international motor racing series.

Joining Rail Engineer in 2008, Nigel’s first assignment was a report on new three-dimensional mobile mapping and surveying equipment, swiftly followed by a look at vegetation control machinery. He continues to write on a variety of topics for most issues.
