Racist “jokes” about lynching and rape were posted in the Facebook Messenger group called Sir Winston’s Wanderers.
A whistle-blower told bosses about the group in Grimsby and Barnetby, Lincolnshire.
A source said: “It was really sickening hardcore racism.
“An internal investigation’s on with about 30 people spoken to.”
A spokesman confirmed the probe, insisting: “Harassment and discrimination have no place at Network Rail.”
