Sydney Rail Services Pty Ltd is an independently owned company with extensive experience in rail freight operations including intermodal traffic, import and export freight, train crewing solutions, up-skilling drivers plus training and assessing of those drivers.

SRS was established in 2007 and operated successfully as a solution for train crew hire to existing rail operators across New South Wales. In 2012 SRS made the decision to take the business to the next level by applying for New South Wales rail accreditation. This accreditation was granted in November 2013 with the NSW access agreements being finalised in February 2014 allowing the business to expand and run independently as an operator.
