French Railways Society
About The Society
The French Railways Society is a group of like-minded individuals interested in French railways, railway models and other transport in France. The Society was formed in 1976 as the ‘SNCF Society’ to cater for the interests of British enthusiasts of French railways, changing its name in June 2017.
The Society is well-known for its model railway exhibition, to which many other societies attend with their own model exhibits. This is usually held in Lenham (Kent).
