Continental Railway Circle
About the Circle
The Continental Railway Circle is a UK based society for enthusiasts interested in railways outside throughout the world, outside the British Isles, including main-line, industrial and preserved. The Circle does not have a formal membership as such, and accordingly does not require payment of annual subscription fees.
The Circle has an extensive programme of presentation style meetings which have been run over many decades and which are acknowledged as being of high quality. The regular meetings are monthly in London (save in August) and twice a year in Stafford.
