Why choose us?

Specialist and experienced

Line by Line Ltd. specialises in business analysis for passenger rail companies, with 20 years experience in the rail industry. Whilst we have specialised in this area, our knowledge and skills can be readily applied to other transport modes and business sectors.


We offer timely, thorough and creative analysis to give your company the information it needs for better strategic and short term planning. In so doing, we have already helped several Train Operating Companies (TOC's) to significantly increase revenue and avoid unnecessary costs.

Client focused

As a small, specialist consultancy, we can guarantee director-level customer contact at all times. And as a member of the Independent Rail Consultants Group (, we can draw upon a wide range of other expertise, as required. We also work as Associate Consultants with other consultancies.


“We have worked with Line by Line on a very complex, high profile project where their understanding of sampling, statistics, our objectives and above all of the rail sector made theirs an absolutely reliable pair of hands.  We see them as an indispensable part of the team and a genuine pleasure to work with.”
