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 own regular meeting programme, was replaced by joint arrangements made with the Light Rail Transit Association and the Tramway and Light Railway Association.
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 sponsors an annual meeting usually held in conjunction with the Light Rail Transit Association, typically held at Keen House, Calshot Street, London, N1 9DA.
Information on electric railways provided on its website, publicly accessible.
Access to back issues of the ‘Journal’.
There is no annual membership fee.
