Porterbrook is one of the three major rolling stock companies operating in the United Kingdom (UK). Porterbrook specialises in leasing all types of railway rolling stock and associated equipment and has been active in the UK rail industry since it was privatised in 1994.  Porterbrook owns a fleet of more than 5650 passenger and freight-operating companies and its portfolio represents approximately one-third of the UK's passenger stock fleet.  Porterbrook is an attractive investment given that it provides an essential infrastructure service to the UK transportation network, with stable cash flows supported by long-term contracts within a sector expecting strong growth across the next 30 years.
