Electric Railway Society

About the Society


The Electric Railway Society was established in 1946 as a society dedicated to promoting interest in, and the study of, all aspects of electric railways both in the UK and overseas.

Significant aspects of the Society changed in 2014 when:

(i) publication of the ‘Journal’ ceased, replaced by a website;

(ii)  members were no longer subject to a subscription fee, and became in effect ‘supporters’ of the Society;

(iii) its regular meeting programme ceased

Benefits of ‘Membership’

The Society does not have a formal membership as such, and accordingly no payment in the form of a subscription fee is necessary.

​The Society formerly sponsored an annual meeting usually held in conjunction with the Light Rail Transit Association, typically in London, however this appears to have discontinued.

Information on electric railways worldwide are provided on its website, publicly accessible.

Access to back issues of the ‘Journal’ available.






Membership Fee

There is no annual membership fee.
