Cumbrian Railways Association

About the Association


The Cumbrian Railways Association aims to foster interest in the railways of Cumbria. It aims to draw together the work of those actively researching Cumbrian railway history, to encourage and co-ordinate their activities, and to provide a medium for publication of the results of their research, and to record as much as possible of what remains of the Cumbrian railway system.

The Association issues periodically an historical magazine and holds two full day meetings for members each year.
